Moving and unforgettable - The Legend of the Holy Drinker review by PS

Spoiler Alert
04/02/2020

This is a slow but poignant tale which raises many questions. Rutger Hauer's fine, understated and dignified performance is award-worthy. This superbly made film and Hauer's mesmerising performance engaged me throughout and left me wanting to find out more about Joseph Roth and his writing.
