Audience Reviews for Nostradamus



Leo L

Super Reviewer


I have always been fascinated by the Prophecies of Nostradamus & what made him tick, but this Movie tells much more than his Story, but also of the times he Lived in.His Secret Library & What happened to that, his Drug Use, the Inquisition, the Plague, & his favor with the Court are all delved deeply into here.The Performances by Tcheky Karyo & Rutger Hauer(with a hat with candles on it) are unbelievable, as is this Movie to any History Buff.
