is a 1999 mystery thriller film directed, produced, and co-written by Roman Polanski. It was the film adaptation of the book , written by Arturo Pérez-Reverte.
While panned by critics and often disliked by many, we feel it’s really a phenomenally underrated film. A quite masterful piece of cinema, which functions on multiple layers, with deep symbology, and is extremely well thought out, with Kubrickian level foresight and planning in terms of its script and how all avenues of its production wove a tapestry of a much deeper story and mystery.
Due to it being one of our favorite films, we have put together this detailed audio deconstruction of the story, symbolism, and occult undertones which aim to give some insights on that mystery. is an analysis/deconstruction created after extensive viewings, interest, and research of the film, highlighting the deeper underlying themes of what the story entails via our own personal experiences with the esoteric, meaning inside, and the occult, meaning hidden. Think of it as a short audiobook that provides some secret keys.
The paywall serves two purposes. It makes you the purchaser value the information more, as well as keeping this more juicy information behind a set of castle gates.
