Storyline

Europe in second half of 16th century was very rough place to live. Peasants of Slovenia and Croatia had even rougher times because of the constant threat of Turk raids and being taxed to death in order to provide defence against the Turks. But, the worst things were arrogant local feudal lords led by Franjo Tahi who were oppresing the common folk. All that led to the great peasant revolt of 1573. The movie is made for the 400th anniversary of the event. Written by Dragan Antulov <dragan.antulov@altbbs.fido.hr>

Trivia

Film makers worked very hard in order to make the film as authentic as possible. Actors even had to say all their lines in specific dialect spoken in 16th century Croatia. Since very few people could understand that dialect in 1970s Yugoslavia, the movie had to be subtitled. See more »

No acting, no screenplay, no tempo nor suspense in the progression of the story. It's a mix of drama and comedy that, after many pointless digressions, goes nowhere but to the obvious "epic" battle (it was time) and final doom of the unpalatable hero. Yet there is a little tail that's wagging around with the two youngsters who survived the slaughter, (and two hours of acting) nobody knows how. Life must go on, that seems to be the final likely message, the last banality after many. If production years were right one could say "Seljacka buna 1573" aka "Anno domini 1573" to be an hybrid between the Italian "L'Armata Brancaleone" and the American "Braveheart", botched and barren anyway, and with an amateurish flavor.
