DIRECTOR: FRANTISEK VLáCIL

CAST: MAGDA VáSáRYOVá, JOSEF KEMR, FRANTISEK VELECKý

A tempestuous fever dream in black-and-white Cinemascope, Frantisek Vlacil’s at once gnomic and epic tale of the bloody, crossed-swords dealings between two tribes in 13th century middle Europe is a sensorial ravishment, filled with forbidding, frostbitten landscapes, period texture detailed to the last link of chain mail, and church bells that will leave your head ringing. Recommended for fans of Tarkovsky, Hard to Be a God, and Medieval squalor in general.
