It is a fantasy - and it has problems
4 August 2006 | by (Czech Republic) – See all my reviews

The other reviewer noted:

It is happening in non-existent time (20th century, perhaps) and is based on Nostradamus prophecies

S/he also said:

"Some of the costumes of the film are strange looking, especially if your not familiar with European culture.

There is Czech folk outfits, men with feather hats and other strange gypsy like clothes.."

Here I differ: If you are familiar with Czech (or rather Slovak or Ukrainian) culture, history and customs,

you will find the costumes even more strange than the story.

That does not bother me; I like a good fantasy:

Example of a good fantasy (a fairy tale, using Czech/German folklore is The Brothers Grimm (2005)

"..Not quite the story of the Brothers Grimm I know..

Shot in Prague, Czech Republic, the film is dark, yet beautiful. .." http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0355295/

The problem with this movie is not that authors invented a parallel universe.

Problem is that they packed the movie with exaggerated episodes of all what is wrong with many regional Czech/Slovak movies: It is mostly about getting drunk, incoherent pub shouting and eating with intensity but not finesse of a food-porno movie.

All that with necessary pig-slaughter ceremony rendered in naturalistic details with lots of blood and gore and - eh - bad manners.

I suppose some people may like such naturalistic scenes. I had to fast-forward trough most of them. I do not recommend this movie, particularly not for gentle souls.
