No blockbuster but a nice chapter from Hungarian history
The story-line is hardly known for Non-Hungarians. King Laszlo was a Saint of the Catholic Church and his regnum was source of several legends of a hero like those about King Arthur, especially in Transylvania. This kings were descendants of the archaic Hungarian tribal leader, later Royal family Arpad. Why such an accent on religion? Saint Stephen the founder of the modern Hungarian state was an apostolic King. Overall, you need a good command of history to get all the messages not like for blockbusters as Ben Hur or the Gladiator. Many of the scenes played in wonderful old buildings existed that time already and on plots calling the landscape must had been the times the movie played in.
