Movie Review: The Countess
The Countess is a movie about the notorious Hungarian countess Elizabeth Bathory. She's well known for her crimes ... but less is known about her life.
I don't know if this move is historically relevant or not, but it does give us insight into her life. The beginning of the movie could be better but the story does get interesting enough to watch it until the end. What I like the most about this movie is the fact that Elizabeth isn't shown as a supernatural creature (like some Dracula movies). She's just a woman, who falls in love ... and hates getting old. I could relate to that. =)
This movie certainly isn't for anyone. I'd recommend it to all of you who like movies about historical people without all the ''super-interesting'' made up twists. It's a very watchable movie, but not excellent.
Thanks for looking!
