Simply no plot
I went to the cinema because I love art and I am interested in the life and works of Michelangelo. Also I enojy eurpoean cinema, including low budget movies as they are more relistic and down to earth. But the movie was far below my expectations. Both me and my wife wanted to leave the cinema at several points and I saw maybe 4 people leave the cinema for good at different times before the end. The main reason is that I did not feel like there was a good plot line. I actually did not understand what and why happened sometimes. It felt like there is no purpose. The accent was on depicting what the dark times looked like: reallistic scenes of misery and how history was driven by the two rich families and the Vatican. That part was good in the sense that it really gives you that feeling, but the story of Michelangelo did not feel central and very well connected. Actor play was good, especially the main character.
