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

Quotes

Brother Paul: I learned from the people what happened. One of her majesty's barons came at night and struck Father Joseph with his sword. A giant of a man, they told me. Then his men destroyed the chapel. The people fled into the forest.
Prince Wenceslas: This giant, did he speak?
Brother Paul: Forgive me, sire.
Prince Wenceslas: You can tell me.
Brother Paul: He spoke only once and briefly. As he raised his sword he shouted, 'This is done in the name of Wenceslas.'

a truly based and fantastic film!!
8 August 2004 | by (tianjin China) – See all my reviews

I saw this film a few weeks ago when it showed on CCTV China.I'm so into it and Jon Brandis(and it was the first time I knew about him)--he was soooo great in the movie!! And I was shocked when I knew he's on the heaven.I went to a wet that's set to memorize him and found out how he died. I began to consider about this luxurious-and-full-of-dreams-looking show-biz group. It isn't that good all the time, right?

Back to this movie, the shootings are beautiful, the acting and songs are brilliant.I bet there'd be people from all ages like it,including my mom and I(I'm 18 years old).

I rate this movie 9.5 plus a special 10 for Jon Brandis.We like you and forever.
