Very interesting plot. I love historical movies. I was really excited when I found out, that there is a movie about a Hungarian countess. As I am Hungarian i was really looking forward to watching it.Bit disappointing. At least if you make a movie try and be true to the country you are showing. Pronunciation of the names if terrible. The characters were not even similar to Hungarians. So basically if I didn't know she was Hungarian, I wouldn't even have recognised the place or country it related to. Apart from that, the story is unusual, the movie is an art. But if you watch it, do not think this is the real 17th century in Hungary:).
