Angel or devil?!!!
The biographical film Sarlatan is good, it is worth seeing because it describes the life and destiny of an interesting and controversial character.
The life of the main character is totally atypical and includes both good and evil.
On the one hand he was completely dedicated to the work of a healer, treating 200 people a day of all kinds of diseases, on the other hand he was a sadomasochist, with accents of madness when torturing and killing animals or when self-mutilating or with accents of murderer when he proposes to the man he lived with to kill his unborn child...
A person with extraordinary abilities but also with an obvious mental and emotional imbalance.
It bothered me that the film did not show clearly what was the situation of the character towards the end of his life, namely the fact that he was sentenced to 5 years in prison and not killed and that after his release he did not deal with healing.
