Storyline

Wenceslas, the young king of Bohemia, lives trapped between the wisdom of his Christian grandmother and his ever constant battle with his tyranical step-mother. She wants her own son to be king and constantly tries to stay in charge of Weceslas's life (including picking out a bride for him). But it is only when he sees the suffering of his people that Wenceslas learns how vital it is that his step-brother never rules. Written by Max Vaughn

Great Movie
19 March 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie back in 1994 when it aired on TV, and loved it. Unfortunately, I only was able to watch it the once or twice, as I never could find it on tv again. Maybe I just missed it when it was on again, but I wish it would be aired again soon, or released on video. It is great movie that adults, family, and slightly older kids would enjoy - I was only 12 when I saw it and loved it! I hope it will be aired or released on video so that those who missed it will be able to watch it! On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being the best, I rate this movie a 15!!
