But OK, let’s let that go. Let’s assume that 80 years (or 250) here or there doesn’t really matter given that both bits of history at least sort of happened. And centuries better not matter, because I haven’t even mentioned the whole witch-hunt thing, a key part of the film’s plot. The whole movie opens with the execution of three women for witchcraft at some indeterminate time before the action really starts. But you know what wasn’t really in full swing in 1348? Witch hunts. You know when that really got going? 1487 – 140-ish years later.
I do enjoy ragging on really awful historical films.
