Based on the 17th Century Czech witch trials, this is a well made, beautifully shot, still relevant & disturbing film about what happens when naive hysteria overrides reason & compassion, giving power to gross vanity & corruption. The performances are convincing. Be horrified. Be disgusted. Be warned.
If you're looking for an unsavory depiction of a lawyer, this is the film for you. See who he reminds you of.
