Goofs

One scene shows a dog chewing on the end of a bone. The end of this bone was clean-cut. Clean-cut bones do not occur until the 1900s, when mechanization makes it possible to precisely cut the tiny teeth on bone saw and hack saw blades, which are the only tools which can cut bone in such a neat way.

Black and bleak
5 September 2018 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

The movie takes its time and overall I think what it tries to do is recommendable. Putting a face to something that was a horrible event in history is not a bad idea. But until we get there, you may get bored or at least a bit annoyed. The acting is good and there is quite a few things you may like. Not the over the top cliches at points probably.

We have Jason Flemyng and Lena Headey, the latter probably having some training or at least getting accostumed to something she later revised (GoT). So for them it seems like it was fun. It doesn't quite translate to the screen. Some of the symbolism (sexual frustration, being in charge as a woman and so forth) really don't shine as much as they could. Still there have been worse movies out there
