Hi guys, I had seen this film and here is my review about a magician during the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
Okay, the story is based on a fictionalised version of Crown Prince Rudolf who allegedly committed suicide with Baroness Mary Vetsera, his 17 years old mistress at his hunting lodge at Mayerling. His name was changed to that of Crown Prince Leopold, who in a contrast to the real-life Crown Prince Rudolf, serves as the antagonist of the film. He plans a Coup D'etat against his father, the aging Emperor Franz Joseph and usurp both the...
I never thought any film au televisheni production would find another story written kwa Jane Austen to adapt. Not really. The mwandishi only had six novels published. And I was never really aware of any other novels, novellas au short stories . . . until I learned about "LOVE & FRIENDSHIP", Whit Stillman's adaptation of Austen's 1794 epistolary novel, "Lady Susan".
Set during the 1790s, "LOVE & FRIENDSHIP" began with the aristocratic and lovely young widow, Lady Susan Vernon, being forced to leave the...

"POLDARK" SERIES ONE (2015): EPISODES ONE TO FOUR
In the years between 2010 and 2015, I have not been able to stumble across a new British period drama that really impressed me. Five years. That is a hell of a long time for a nation with a sterling reputation for period dramas in both sinema and television. Fortunately, the five-year dry spell finally came to an end (at least for me) with the arrival of "POLDARK", the BBC's new adaptation of Winston Graham's literary series.
"POLDARK" SERIES ONE (1975): EPISODES ONE TO FOUR
A few years ago, I had tried a stab at the first episode of the 1975-1977 series, "POLDARK", which starred Robin Ellis. After viewing ten dakika of theatrical uigizaji and dated upigaji picha in Episode One on wewe Tube, I gave up.
Last summer, I read all of the hullaballoo surrounding this new adaptation with Aidan Turner in the lead. Utilizing Netflix, I tried my luck again with the 1975 series and ended up enjoying the first four episodes (I have yet to watch any further episodes) and quite enjoyed it. I...
"FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD" (1998) Review
To my knowledge, there have been five adaptations of Thomas Hardy's 1874 novel, "Far From the Madding Crowd". One of them is even a modern siku adaptation. I have not seen this modern version of Hardy's novel. But I have seen at least three adaptations, including the 1967 version directed kwa John Schlesinger.
"FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD" - at least the 1967 version - has been highly regarded kwa critics, moviegoers and mashabiki of Hardy's novel for nearly five decades. It is the adaptation that other ones have been...
I must admit that I am usually not a shabiki of novels au any other forms of storytelling that are based upon au continuations of published works of the origin author. This is certainly the case for the numerous works (sans two) based upon Jane Austen's six published novels.
The 2008 miniseries, "LOST IN AUSTEN" is not based upon any particular Austen novel that was not written kwa the Georgian Era writer. Instead, it is the brainchild of screenwriter Guy Andrews. The latter created this fantasy-comedy, which is an adaptation...
I suspect that many mashabiki of costume dramas would be fascinated to know about the series of period dramas released kwa the British film industry during the post-World War II era. A good number of those films were released kwa a British film studio known as Gainsborough Pictures. But not all of them were released through this particular studio. Some were released through other studios au production companies . . . like the 1948 period drama, "BLANCHE FURY".
It seems that Leo Tolstoy’s War & Peace («Война и миръ», Voyna i mir) novel is like the holy grail of every director who respects himself.
