Worth a Look
20 April 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The one for connoisseurs.

The film is based on an old Serbian epic song. It is one of not too many Yugoslav films with medieval 14 century theme, so only for that, for me, it would be worth a look.

Dragan Nikolic is brilliant as Vlah Alija, with no other than Franco Nero as Banovic Strahinja. Rade Serbedzija is exceptional as a crazy dervish and the scene where he is impaled by the Turks is more than powerful.

A minor curiosity in this day and age is that the film with such a typical Serbian folk story was directed by a Croat.
