Described as a historical fantasy, the fantasy series explores the untold story of da Vinci "inventing" the future at the age of 25, at a time in history when thought and faith are controlled...as one man fights to set knowledge free. The young da Vinci struggles with his inner darkness tortured by a gift of superhuman genius. He is a heretic intent on exposing the lies of religion. An insurgent seeking to subvert an elitist society. A bastard son who yearns for legitimacy with his father. The series includes many of the real da Vinci inventions and subsequent work as a military engineer for the Duke of Milan and later on the Borgias. The events also contain a mystic who calls himself "Child of Earth", that guides da Vinci in unlocking the hidden areas of his mind by accessing the Fountain of Memory, related to Noetic theory, Akashic Records, ancient stories found in Mímisbrunnr, Old Norse "the rememberer, wise one", the "32nd Path" of the Kabbala "Tree of Life", Celtic religions and the Upanishads. The mytharc is formed when Da Vinci's character becomes involved with a quest for the Book of Leaves and the mystery cult known as the Sons of Mithras. Entwined together are da Vinci's brutally antagonistic relationship with his father, who works for the Medicis, the shadowy wars of secret societies, the dangerous romance with an undercover spy and the political schemes of Florence and Milan fighting for power. Medieval backdrops are combined with hi-tech CGI to visualize da Vinci's intense imagination, eidetic memory and thought processes, with a scientific step by step monologue sometimes paired with slow-motion and rotoscoping blueprints.
Staffel 1 ist bei der Hälfte gerade und Staffel 2 schon im Auftrag.
Meine persönliche Meinung:
Nette Idee und eine gute Abwechselung zum normalen Serienalltag. Die Effekte sind auch gut, aber vorallem die zwei Frauen gefallen. Sieht halt ein wenig so aus, wie Angelina Jolie in jung, die Gute Frau Haddock. Jammy.
