Marketa Lazarova

It's a long film about a time in Czech history, featuring Marketa Lazarova.

I'm going to quote IMBD here: "A minor Czech clan falls afoul of the King in medieval times, against the backdrop of Christianity replacing Paganism." Uh, okay. I'll have to admit something... I gave up half way through this movie. It's a long movie, and it just didn't hold my interest.

I even failed to pick up it was Czech. What the film felt like to me was telling a fairy tale, with the way the film was shot and the imagery used, aural and visual. I was sure it wasn't, but had a hard time telling what it was about.

I tried, but not a movie for me.
