REVIEW
I was hearing good reviews of this movie, so I decided to check it out especially because I knew Leonardo was going to be revealed.

Turns out it was pretty engaging. There is some flashbacks, but I managed to keep track of what was going on. I also did not know how it would end, though I guess it did not end the way I expected it would, which was refreshing. It certainly was suspenseful, but hardly thrilling, as I was only startled once.

It is a good story and I love the era in which the movie takes place, feeling that Leonardo is perfect for characters from the same era. I certainly appreciated the male frontal nudity scene, despite the character that was revealed. I even recognized Knightly Delights Elias Koteas…ooo, la la!
