New release: Age of Uprising: The Legend of Michael Kohlhaas

An upcoming film, already released in some parts of Europe. Here's the synopsis:

"An epic drama set in 16th century France against a backdrop of feudalism in decline, Age of Uprising: The Legend of Michael Kohlhaas stars Mads Mikkelsen as a well-to-do horse merchant who resorts to fanatical and violent extremes to obtain justice after a nobleman openly and illegally humiliates him by stealing two of his horses."

I have seen it. It is super slow. It's closer to the metaphysical Viking western Valhalla Rising (which I enjoyed but is not for everyone) than your traditional entertaining peplum. However it is not as convincing. A slow pace is sometimes necessary. Here it is not always justified.
