Storyline

A controversial film about the end of the old pagan world in central Europe, THE PAGAN QUEEN is based on the Czech legend of Libuse, the Slavic queen of 8th century Bohemia. Gifted with supernatural powers, a visionary and a seer, this extraordinary woman was able to see the future and in a turbulent time of cultural change founded the modern city of Prague. Libuse ruled as a woman over the tribes of the region with her two beautiful sisters Kazi and Teta and an army of women under the command of her best friend, the Amazon Vlasta. When the peaceful community of farmers is under attack by raiders and split into different parties of power hungry landowners, Libuse is forced into marriage by her own people. Desperate she elects her long time lover, the charismatic ploughman Premysl, to become her husband and king. Soon Premyl takes over the new kingdom and rules with an iron fist, enslaving the formerly free farmers. But Libuse's friend Vlasta, who is secretly in love with her, refuses ...

Where's the story?
22 August 2013 | by (Valhalla) – See all my reviews

This is a movie my brother likes. I decided to sit down and watch this knowing full well of it's reputation here on IMDb. I have absolutely no idea of the Czech legend it was based on so I am not going to bring that up as a complaint.

The plot is that a king dies and one of his three daughters ends up being queen. This one can also see the future (Why is this never explained?). She whores herself (There really is no better word for it) at a peasant who saved her life and gets him to become king once a war starts. Completely forgetting about the war (??????????????) the king starts ruling the country with an iron fist (Which when we see the only settings being caves, forests and peasant houses - yes even the castle looks exactly the same as a farm).

So the plot is pretty disjointed (but it's not like Monster A-Go Go where you ask yourself if there was a plot to begin with) to the extent that I didn't really know what these people were doing or what they were aiming for. The King's goal (See! I don't even remember his name!) seems clear enough, grow as a country and crush his opposition. That was all I got for the movie in terms of goals.

The next point. What were the character's names? I know Libuse but... That's all. I didn't know what any other person's name was. The 2 minute exposition at the beginning might have said them but of all the things we don't have to rely on THAT.

Another thing the villain of this piece has to be one of the weakest villains in cinema. I mean, worse than Plan 9 From Outer Space. I know I can't take that back but it's true the villain in Plan 9 From Outer Space was stronger.

Now onto the positives. The Acting was decent from some people, even if they are also forgettable. The Cinematography was not bad (even if they have about 4 locations). There was a small hint that they could have been trying something with the premise.

So if you want to sit down and watch a historical drama with some kind of love relationship... watch the three hour cut of Arn instead. That had a plot, character development, DEVELOPMENT, good focus and when they changed it, they did it right. Go watch that instead.
