Fantastic - Mads Mikkelson brilliant as ever
- Age of Uprising: The Legend of Michael Kohlhaas review by SB
This film gained so many awards and it's not hard to see why. Tough, uncompromising in its occasional brutality and yet very touching also. A really good historical movie. Excellent performances all round especially from the leads. I would heartily recommend.
