from an anglo-centric and a male-centric point of view, this movie sucks, of course...
from any other point of view, The Countess is a very well orchestrated piece of story-telling.
a dark portrait of a dark age. a tale of love and madness. but did our emotions evolved so much as our techniques?
as it starts: "history is the tale told by the victors. who are the victors? barbaric warriors, mad kings and greedy traitors. mainly most of our history is made of fables fabricated by those glorious victors."
as till today, history is male's victory... here you got a female's tale... see for yourself. i can only tell: i dove into it
