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 ...

I enjoyed it.
9 July 2013 | by Morbius_FitzgeraldSee all my reviews

Okay, I did research on the legend this film was based on before I wrote this review up. Can I say, if you want an accurate story to the legend, you will be disappointed. If, however, you just want a fantasy/period piece, I heavily recommend it.

I think its time to tell you why I like it. I absolutely adore the cinematography. The shot compositions were near reminiscent of Werner Herzog. I am in no way comparing because Herzog will come out on top of this argument but still, I can certainly think of worse shot composition.

I also think that the two leads (Libuse and Premysl) did a great job with their parts. At first I genuinely thought this would be some sort of Arn ripoff via including a relationship early on in the piece. I have read the Wikipedia article on the Libuse legend (I know, inaccurate) and she didn't know him until she sent the horse out, I do think this was for the better because it kind of explains why he becomes a "harsh king".

There are a few things that I would call "wrong with this film", the most important one is sound. I have chastised movies for f*cking this up but thankfully for this film, I'm willing to forgive. The sound at a couple of times is out of synch and often soundtrack pieces just end out of nowhere. This is a major reason why its not higher up in terms of a rating.

The ending has had a lot of criticism but I do feel it suits because it is reminiscent of what really happened among those times. I also feel as though the ending in itself was a harsh one to give the audience...and I actually love that.

Overall, this is low budget, the director has no idea how to direct an action sequence and make it interesting or even believable for that matter, however if you are willing to forgive a few minor errors and just enjoy this film, you will.
