It's good! Everyone should see this film! One of the best that we - Latvians - have created! ;) It shows the great spirit of us. Over the centuries we have been fighting against greater powers - crusaders (Germans), Sweden, Rzecpospolita-Polska, Russians... This movie shows short period of 17th century when Sweden and Poland attempted to get control over Latvian lands and its administrative center - Riga, that was one of the key trading points in Baltic sea region! This movie shows few heroes that fought against foreign forces. They are somehow similar to musketeers of Alexander Dima - "One for all and all for one!" Some great play by best theater actors of those times makes this movie even more magnificent!
