Europe in second half of 16th century was very rough place to live. Peasants of Slovenia and Croatia had even rougher times because of the constant threat of Turk raids and being taxed to death in order to provide defence against the Turks. But, the worst things were arrogant local feudal lords led by Franjo Tahi who were oppresing the common folk. All that led to the great peasant revolt of 1573. The movie is made for the 400th anniversary of the event. Written by Dragan Antulov <>

Did You Know?


Film makers worked very hard in order to make the film as authentic as possible. Actors even had to say all their lines in specific dialect spoken in 16th century Croatia. Since very few people could understand that dialect in 1970s Yugoslavia, the movie had to be subtitled. See more »

A very good history lesson and a very good movie
11 May 2012 | by (Novi Sad, Serbia) – See all my reviews

This is a story about the uprising of peasants in Croatia in the XVI century. It is also described in August Šenoa's novel of the same title, but I'm not sure if the movie used the book as a source.

I must say that I was pleasantly surprised by the way this movie was made. Much attention is paid to details, the atmosphere (very creepy most of the time), but also there are scenes that testify of the director's own style.

The last half hour is reminiscent of "Braveheart"; if you get the chance to see this you should pay attention. There is even a very cruel torture scene at the end, and as I read on Wikipedia it was even more terrible in the reality.

There are some traces of the communist ideology inserted into the movie, however everything works quite well. And a warning: the characters speak a dialect of the Croatian language, so without subtitles it is hard to understand it.
