A smaller film with excellent production values. During the first outbreak of the plague in England, a group of soldiers is sent to investigate a village untouched by the pestilence and suspected of witch craft. It deals creatively with religious extremism, offering a look at two sides of this multi-faceted subject rather than simply focusing on the usual boogeymen of fantaticism (most commonly Christianity, with Islam as a close second).
The cast is good, though it could be argued that Sean Bean is underused.
Should appeal to most anyone who enjoyed In the Name of the Rose or The 13th Warrior.
