I have recently seen the film Captain Alatriste, and it is absolutely fantastic!
Has anyone else seen it?
It stars Ara.. Viggo Mortensen, and is the most expensive Spanish language film ever made.
It is set in the 17thC and goes through Alatriste's involvement in Spain's wars of empire in Europe.
It makes me want to get a terico or five up and running. It very good stuff - especially the fight sequences, where you see swordsmen dashing under the engaged pikemen and causing all sorts of problems.
