CGiii Comment

A tale that could have been told in half the time.

As to homoeroticism...where?!?

A very unattractive leading actor with as much sex appeal as a battered frog...does not constitute homoeroticism!

For it's time...the photography is impressive...but, so long-winded.

A bit of a snore-fest.


Watch...

The(ir) Blurb...

A poor student rescues a beautiful countess and soon becomes obsessed with her. A sorcerer makes a deal with the young man to give him fabulous wealth and anything he wants, if he will sign his name to a contract. The student hurriedly signs the contract, but doesn't know what he's in for.
