My overall impression

First off- I am sucker for verse, so they kind of had me at lights up. There were so many clever lines. My fave- I will take the Mach out of Machiavelli. The story had it all- love, hate, vengeance, scheming, bloody murder, a decent body count, fratricide, a crooked philandering Pope, seduction, sword fights. The only thing missing were men in tights. The actors were able to carry off a difficult text with little difficulty and the bare bones set worked to create the world of Valentino- a driven man who is not afraid to get medieval if he has to. If you are looking for big drama- here it is. I look forward to seeing this with a larger budget and men in tights.
