Tomás del Estal,
a Spanish historical film. not different by many others. same battle for power, secrets, traitors, forbidden love stories, fight scenes and complex plot. different is the lead character who reminds the simple sacred values who defines a honest life. and the atmosphere of a city who becomes a character itself. a beautiful story and not bad acting. spirit of an old period who reflects the images of present. tension, humor and the clichés about Middle Age. all in decent and, in few episodes, touching mix. a film about values more than reconstruction of a page from history. seductive, nice or interesting. not great ambitions but a real honest work. that is all. like many historical films, an adventure.
