Age of Uprising: The Legend of Michael Kohlhaas

Age of Uprising: The Legend of Michael Kohlhaas ★★★★

In short, what I liked in this film are :
- the natural set - the story of the film happens in 16th century in the "Cévennes" (south-center of France), the sound, the lights, the landscapes, the architecture are taken from natural set, we are really far away from the artificial blockbusters, lots of close-ups mainly on faces (which contrast with the wide shots on the landscape), lots of cuts due especially to a special kind of editing, action often taken in off camera
- the main subject is about the notion of justice/injustice, questioning the morals and the ethics
- Mads Mikkelsen has a great, noble presence, an imposing and solenm figure, foreshadowing a revolutionary hero, he's perfect in this role, the acting in general is convicing
- great music
