straight and to the point
10 November 2003 | by illharmonics00See all my reviews

I enjoyed this film, which I believe was a one-hour bio on the Protestant reformer who predated Luther and the rest by about a hundred years.

It's kind of funny watching trained English stage actors play the parts of simple farmers and priests. Also, the cinematography was a little weak. But I believe that this was intended, so as to keep the movie simple and to the point about an idealist reformer. So although the film quality drops the rating, the story makes up for it.

It's strange to think that religious freedoms that we take for granted, like being able to read Scripture in our own tongue, cost the lives of dedicated and idealistic people hundreds of years ago. With this mindset penultimately installed in the viewer at film's end, John Hus is burned at the stake in 1415 while singing a hymn, another once-banned practice.
