Is it so bad, then, to be misunderstood? Pythagoras was misunderstood, and Socrates, and Jesus, and Luther, and Copernicus, and Galileo, and Newton, and every pure and wise spirit that ever took flesh. To be great is to be misunderstood.

—Ralph Waldo Emerson

Synopsis: King Louis XIII of France is thrilled to have born to him a son - an heir to the throne. But the twin children lead to a terrible power grab with a horrific plan.

Reaction: Basically a silent film with a speaking narrator. You have to get used to the format, but it's not bad once you do.

Personal Rating: 7/10
