Five hundred years ago a revolutionary priest changed the face of Christendom and the path of European civilization forever. Risking his life and academic reputation, facing damnation and purgatory in 1517, he pinned his inflammatory 95 Theses to the church door in the Catholic church and the western world would never be the same again. His name was Martin Luther. This is a story of a group of people alive 500 years ago whose internal convictions led them to forge a new path - one that ultimately changed the world.

12 January 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

Its basic purpose - a hommage to Martin Luther at the 500 years after the 95 points was hanged on the door of Wittenberg cathedral. its virtue - realistic, very simple, off course, portrait of the evolution of Reform, a not bad portrait of Martin Luther and Thomas Muntzer. the sins - maybe, the status of film "as usum Delphini", a work of popularisation, nice, usefull but too reduced at the sketch form. sure, image of intense fight and victory. but, after its end, something remains not enough and only the context saves it from a bitter critic. short, a film on the border. good performances, good atmosphere, decent script. but , for each Christian - not only Protestant-, the story is more complex. and more seductive.
