    A towering achievement in Period Drama. Dark and oppressive the narrative gives way to heightened emotional resonance as our young Mercury is used by everyone for their own gains and ultimately bares the burden of their sins for his unwitting compliance in their cruel games. 5 years 6 months ago

    The feeling is conveyed well enough, though the narrative can be confusing and the ending lacks the punch of the original writing. 7 months 2 weeks ago

    I remember trying to watch this. It was a colossal bore and I didn't get past 45 minutes. 7 years ago
