The Blood Countess and the Beginnings of the Feminist Movement
Writer/director/producer/musical scorer/actress Julie Delpy brings to the screen a character from history that few know. The film is based on the true history of the woman known as The Blood Countess, but after viewing this film it is obvious that the actual figure on whom the story is based was a brilliant political mind, a woman of noble breeding who could read and write in four languages, who once widowed was able to successfully defend her lands from the warring Turks and exact control over the reigning Hungarian King Matthias. But back to the history of the character as written by Delpy. ‘Countess Elizabeth Báthory de Ecsed (Báthory Erzsébet in Hungarian) (1560 – 1614) was a countess from the renowned Báthory family of Hungarian nobility. She is considered the most prolific female serial killer in history and possibly the most prolific of any gender. She and four collaborators were accused of torturing and killing hundreds of girls, with one witness attributing to them over 650 victims, though the number for which they were convicted was 80. Erzsébet herself was neither tried nor convicted. In 1610, however, she was imprisoned in the Csejte Castle, where she remained bricked in a set of rooms until her death four years later. Later writings about the case have led to legendary accounts of the Countess bathing in the blood of virgins in order to retain her youth.’

The film opens with voice over by István Thurzó (Daniel Brühl) who relates the story of his only love. We are privy to the strange behaviors of the young Erzsébet who had a sadistic streak and was at birth promised to be the bride of Ferenc Nádasdy (Charly Hübner). She became a beautiful woman and Erzsébet (Julie Delpy) married General Nádasdy, gave birth to children, and together they were the power couple of Hungary. When Nádasdy dies, Erzsébet meets and falls passionately in love with István Thurzó (Daniel Brühl), a many 19 years her junior, but Istvan’s father György Thurzó (William Hurt) prevents Istvan from remaining with Erzsébet. Left alone Erzsébet remains a powerful warrior, dallies with the sadomasochistic Dominic Vizakna (Sebastian Blomberg), but fears her young lover will forget her if she ages. She discovers that the blood from virgins will restore her youth and thus begins the serial killings to support her vanity. As questions of debts owed to her by the King there is an investigation of her personal history led by György Thurzó and without proper trial she is condemned to house arrest in darkened sealed rooms in her own Csejte Castle where her fate is sealed.

The film is beautifully designed, costumed, photographed and scored, and Delpy manages to pace her story credibly and well. For this viewer there is an absence of gritty passion that would make the history more indelible: Delpy and the remainder of the cast fail to create fiery on-screen chemistry that would have brought a sense of stronger impetus to the heinous acts that occur. But as a piece of rarely known history it is a fascinating film about a strong woman of the past and the impact she had on her country … and on legends!

Better than ‘Bathory’ by gnat’s whisker…
I hope I don’t upset a lot of good folks when I say that American film makers just can’t make top quality period drama. Westerns being the obvious exception. The American accent is a relatively recent thing and it simply doesn’t work in any kind of believable form when coming from the mouth of a sixteenth century character. It’s the accent of cops, hoodlums, coke adverts and hamburgers.

That said, there was a great deal effort put into this film to get things looking and feeling right for the period. However, all those efforts don’t come anywhere near paying off. The Countess is a slowing moving, uninteresting mishmash of ‘serious’ actooors plying their trade within a risible script. It tries so hard to be a ‘great’ work and fails at every turn.

Julie Delpy seems unaware of who or what she is. The countess is at times a lesbian lover, matriarch, wife, businesswoman, wreck, girl, woman and everything else you can think of… all in slow motion.

William Hurt isn’t given a chance with his script. His monstrous character is barely explored and his sidekick, sadomasochistic accomplice is just a daft cliché.

Bathory (the other, recent version of this story) was simply terrible. This film is not a lot better in my opinion although it certainly improves a little when the pace picks up towards the end. But despite all of the money chucked at it, I found it barely watchable. A real shame.

As for Erzebet Bathory, I think it would take someone of the stature of Roman Polanski to tell her story in a compelling, cinematic way.

Keep away from this film. It’s a stinker.
