I do agree some of the comedy with the monks in there was out of place. Thus the film is upside down, since only some of the supporting actors have only a few sentences in Hungarian. In addition, it gives an interesting portrayal of politics, religion and royalty of the time. Have they heard about the Corvinas? Finally we see her doing something which seems to confirm beyond all doubt her reputation -- only to find during the next take that she was under the influence of some hallucinogenic mushroom and did not know about herself. While there might be some genuine basis for this -- serial killers, after all, have been obsessed with stranger notions than the ones legend has attributed to Bathory -- the bottom line is that this lesbian murderess was a sadistic fiend who extracted intense sexual pleasure from the torture and murder of young girls. No scene really gives you a deeper seek into the story. It worked rather well for me, but there wasn't a lot of it.
Κάθε επισκέπτης θα είναι σε θέση να παρακολουθήσει σε απευθείας σύνδεση όλες τις ταινίες με υπότιτλους δωρεάν με καλή εικόνα και ήχο. It is worth a watch. Elizabeth Bathory lets you see the film through the eyes of a mother, lover and ruler rather than the legendary serial killer. Contrary to popular belief, Elizabeth Bathory was a modern Renaissance woman who ultimately fell victim to men's aspirations for power and wealth. You'll also either love or hate the involvement of painter Caravaggio.
A turd is a turd even when coated in silk. It was 2 hours and 15 minutes of absolute nonsense. Many reviews here find the monks' humor out of place, inappropriate, or they just didn't see the purpose of it. There are so many better things to spend your time on. I went in with high expectations of more blood and gore but instead got this long, drawn out movie that I found myself rolling my eyes at more often than not. The myth is that of Bathory as vain, beauty-obsessed blood-bather. Erzsabet's life and times were brutal and this is shown graphically but not too eye wateringly.
Just to remain at historical facts: nobility spoke either in Hungarian, German or Latin, peasants and servants spoke Slovakian in the upper parts of the Kingdom of Hungary. Nothing is credible, it is so Hollywood-istical , so cliché, so full of stereotypes. The dialog was horrible, many of the actors in important roles come off as amateur at best, and the worst crime here is the addition of the monks as poorly conceived vehicles for exposition and totally unnecessary comic relief. The storyline is confused with too many characters and the director didn't decide what to do with Barthory reputation at the end are a ridiculous notice about the crimes of the countess The introducing of the Italian painter, as well as the stupid spies and the English version misrepresent the historical facts. I'm sure it also seemed complex or confusing if you are not familiar with the inner struggles and politics of the Hungarians, Slovaks, and Romanians at that time. Even if this movie did give me anything I wanted it was still garbage for what it was trying to be.
A long, rambling, shambling, doddering, staggering chaos of a film, blighted by amongst other things : 1 impenetrable Middle European accents, most of them genuine but three put on ~ by Miss Friel, her husband, and her lover; 2 a narrative style that was very much like listening to a boring drunk recounting a shaggy dog story; 3 a schizoid attitude toward the countess herself ~ ambiguity is all very well, but to switch sides several times in the course of one story just makes the storyteller appear 'flakey'; 4 a sub-plot about two spying monks which. The story is interesting although. Throughout the film she strives to protect her children, love and land while ignoring her tainted reputation. The review that I just read was pretty accurate. Visually stunning and beautiful, the script gives us a thumpingly good story and altogether it is a mesmerising piece of cinema. And a false myth is born. The distorted character of György Thurzó is really pathetic as he plays the role of the main villain, responsible for nearly all the miseries of Erzsébet Báthory, even for the death of her relative, the distant Gábor Báthory, Prince of Transylvania.
Το όνομα που αναβίωσε στις καρδιές των ανθρώπων τον τρόμο του βαμπίρ όσο κανένα άλλο! In reality there was a library in my homeland as early as the year 1000. Altogether I think one would have to be in a very sour and unforgiving mood to find fault. They are several goofs: -English language was not spoken in that part of Eastern Europe at that time. Come on , the action of the movie is happening around the year 1600 A. They made a world class epic film with excellent technical work, a great re-imagining of the Bathory legend and a good performance by Ms. But it's really just too long and unfocused. There were several days of uneaten food when they found her.
Although the finest art direction, the film is fake in many ways and the rhythm is unstable. Yes, the old standby, folks: when you want to make excuses for evil women, just portray them as nurturing and self-sacrificing, willingly shouldering the burden of undeserved ignominy for the sake of their children. Το όνομα το οποίο κατάφερε να επισκιάσει ακόμα και τον μέγα Κόμη Dracula με τις σατανικές πράξεις του. In my mind, the film was a big waste of time. It moves at a slow and steady pace. This movie could have been so good. The subplots with the Italian painter and the two spy-monks are quite unnecessary and ridiculous.
The whole movie should have been filmed in Hungarian or better in Latin, since those were the tongues the noblemen talked in. The weird dream and fantasy sequences did not help either. Staying at the dialogues: they were awfully simple, the scriptwriter must have been either very young or had some difficulties with English. The performances are highly entertaining and extremely powerful especially the characters of Erzsabet, Caravaggio and Thurzo. The audience is also told that in the 16.
She tortured her victims, exclusively women, before killing them. By middle age she had regressed to a mirror-fixated state of pathological necro-sadism involving witchcraft, torture, blood-drinking, cannibalism and, inevitably, wholesale slaughter. I won't give away the plot, so I won't comment on the actual content of the movie except to say that it was a completely false portrayal of this terrible woman. The movie is watchable but I was expecting a lot-lot more, since Erzsébet Báthory lived in the territory of modern day Slovakia back then it was the Kingdom of Hungary. One may quibble with any film and look for faults, but this film is fascinating and compelling, suitable for anyone interested in the drama of the life of Erzsebet Bathory.
By middle age she had regressed to a mirror-fixated state of pathological necro-sadism involving witchcraft, torture, blood-drinking, cannibalism and, inevitably, wholesale slaughter. Bathory is based on the legends surrounding the life and deeds of Countess Elizabeth Bathory known as the greatest murderess in the history of mankind. I gave Bathory a 4 which I think is fair.
