The Russian poet Andrei Gorchakov, accompanied by guide and translator Eugenia, is traveling through Italy researching the life of an 18th-century Russian composer. In an ancient spa town, he meets the lunatic Domenico, who years earlier had imprisoned his own family in his house for seven years to save them from the evils of the world. Seeing some deep truth in Domenico's act, Andrei becomes drawn to him. In a series of dreams, the poet's nostalgia for his homeland and his longing for his wife, his ambivalent feelings for Eugenia and Italy, and his sense of kinship with Domenico become intertwined.

Very creative and stylized with good performances by the lead actors, this should have seen at least a limited release in theaters. With bigger names, I am sure we would be hearing more about this film.Interesting storytelling choices by director Arthur Louis Fuller give this complicated tale an edge. With an obvious nod to Tarantino (as well as a few other filmmakers), the story focuses on three assassins, with a number of sub-plots and characters entering the picture. Michael Beach, Anna Silk and Guy Garner (co-writer with director Fuller) portray the three assassins and give their characters an "every man" feel about them, dealing with the real life issues most of us deal with. No stereotypical hitmen here. I especially enjoyed the performances of Garner and Kaiwi Lyman, who plays the ring leader of these assassins. Really good actors I'd like to see more of.The director left a lot of questions unanswered, forcing the audience to draw its own conclusions. I watched this film with my wife and another couple. We discussed and argued certain story points and ended up watching it again. It was better the second time around!While not perfect, Assassins Tale is a thinking mans/womans film, and I highly recommend it and hope to see more reviews on here.

Set in Rome, the film is greatly enhanced by stunning shots of the city and grand palaces which draw the viewer in, wishing that they were there.
(de) wrote: This finely balanced film manages to start out funny and become tragic or at least serious whilst maintaining the ability to swap back.For example when the old couple try to gas themselves... but forget to shut the windows...A study of dislocation and dysfunction that is lifted above the run of the mill by good pace and better acting.Definitely recommended.

(de) wrote: Getting further away from the point. So this is about a determined investigative reporter (Kari Wuhrer), who travels to Romania to look into a mysterious cult, the Deaders, who kill members and bring them back to life. Now I know that this series is not all about Pinhead (despite how the cover-art may lead you), but these past two movies have really gotten away from what a Hellraiser movie is all about. It seems as if they just picked these generic thrillers and merged them halfheartedly with Hellraiser elements to keep the rights to the series. I read in a review that this was originally not written with Hellraiser in mind, and that really doesn't surprise me in the slightest. Not that you need a ton of Pinhead in your movie, mind you; the first two movies, Pinhead and the Cenobites are just background supporting characters and those are the best two in the entire series. Here, they just focus on the puzzle box every thirty minutes and call it a day. No scene complements another in any particular way, and this has devolved into the land of jump scares. The majority of the horror just cops out as well, being written off as a dream or a hallucination, and you don't end up trusting the movie because of that. This series so far, I still think Hellraiser 3 is the worst, but this is a close second (although I still haven't seen the infamous Hellraiser 9 yet).

(nl) wrote: The colorful fake sets, the peculiar narration, the simplistic quality of the 12th century source material. Zany? It takes itself seriously. The story is told in Old French couplets sung by minstrels at interludes and recited by the characters, often in third person. (This actually really works.) The music is pleasant, the stage like what you'd see at a play, only much more immersive. Perceval's first encounter with a knight reminds me of 2001 (an alien, monolithic knight). Determined to become one of these creatures, Perceval wanders around misapplying his mother's simple teachings until a knight mentor tells him to stop telling everyone what his mother taught him, and in fact to stop talking so much, unless absolutely necessary. Soon there is a scene with the opposite lesson: talking too little is just as bad as talking too much. The subject matter may be simplistic, but such old stories have a way of catching you off-guard with their directness, then just so with circumspectness.
