There's many anachronisms in scenes from Prague in 1600. Facade of St. Vitus Cathedral is from 19. century, statues on Charles Bridge are from 18. century, many buildings in Mala Strana and Prague Castle are baroque or even modern. See more »
Sultan Murat III:
I like you. Here, all you see is crawling backs, even those who have the hoofs of their horses full of Europe's and Asia's dust. But I could've not liked you. How could you dare?
We only have one life, almighty sultan!
Sultan Murat III:
Indeed... Too bad!

I like this movie because I´m a history buff and secondly my ancestors come from Transylvania. The characters in this movie are brilliant- Amza Pellea even matches the original Michael Petrascu. The only bad thing in the movie: the guns (Russian Mosin Nagant-Rifles) are not accurate. But!!! The are turned with new stocks and barrel bands into fine, ancient muskets. The marching scenes with thousands of Turcs and Romanians are excellent! Shame is, the movie is not very often seen on TV or at a blockbuster.
