HISTORICAL FRENCH EVENTS DRAMATISED THRILLINGLY
on 15 October 2013
This is a very heart-rending thriller/drama based on the historical events of the !13th century in Carcassone in France when the search for the Holy Grail flashes back from a 21st century descendant and keeper of the secrets even though she is unaware of it. The purging by Simon de Montfort is cruel and harrowing as people are burned alive because they will not turn from their faith to Catholicism.
The acting is superb and the "chase" kepps you on the edge of your seat throughout with the many twists and turns.
Not really suitable for under 16's I would have thought.but I really "enjoyed" the unfolding and seeing yet again the effects religion has on the world and its societies. No-one wants to live and let live, people can be very greedy for secrets for themselves and want to dominate others with their views.
