Critic Reviews for The Countess
Wacky tale of a woman who killed virgins for their blood to keep her skin wrinkle-free might get some traction in Central Europe, where it is set, but won't make it past the Europudding label elsewhere.
Audience Reviews for The Countess
Despite its first-rate costume design and Erzsébet Báthory being such a fascinating subject, this flawed historical drama seems more like a soap-opera that tries too hard to soften her image as someone broken-hearted by love but ends too ambiguous for us to care.
True story? Who knows. Story derived from legend? Absolutely. Famous for her obsession with virgin blood, the story of Countess Elizabeth Bathory is a fascinating one, at any rate. Julie Delpy's performance here was outstanding, and her portrayal of mental illness, and heartache, was well done. Good scenery. Good supporting cast. I enjoyed this...
