"The Baltic Tribes" is a story about the last pagans of Europe. Together with the main character, Danish spy Lars, you will experience the 13th century pagan life, taking part in religious rites and cruel forays, getting high during the summer solstice, becoming the slave of Cours and finally - fighting the crusaders in the Battle of Saule. The docudrama overthrows the myths of the Baltic people as just peaceful farmers, and questions, how little we know about the blood that runs in our veins.
Someone was building Rome, some were running naked in the woods
One of the worst movies I've seen in my whole life. 0 dialogues, only the narrator (watched it in lithuanian) who's voice is awful. Even the sound effects aren't timed right (e.g. footsteps). Non-existent, unnoticeable story which lead you to seperate scenes/pictures. Some infamous facts about pagans weren't mentioned and the narrator felt like he was trying his best to make you love these tribes. It's like you were pushed to it.
I am from the Baltic region myself and in my opinion there isn't a single thing in this "civilization" which fascinates me. The fact that we accepted Christianity so late shouldn't be a brag.
