Set in the historic Dark Ages of 700 AD, PAGAN QUEEN is a fantasy that recreates the pagan culture and rituals in convincing and memorable fashion.
Libuse, the Slavic mythological queen of 8th century Bohemia was gifted with supernatural powers, a visionary and a seer. In a turbulent time of cultural change Libuse envisioned the modern city of Prague and ruled over her tribes with gentle wisdom during the magical times before Christianity and scripture, which are remembered only in myths and legends.

I liked this Czech/US production quite a lot, not actually knowing what to expect when I ordered it.
At first I would like to say the cover of the DVD is very misleading and gives the impression one can expect epic battles as in THE LORD OF THE RINGS or IRONCLAD. If this is what you're after, you will be disappointed. There are very very few "battles" in this movie which are rather badly staged and choreographed, with only a handful of actors actually participating in the action (there are no armies as displayed on the cover art). The emphasis in this movie is clearly NOT on the fighting, this is a very character-driven film.
Although PAGAN QUEEN is about the founding of one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Prague, it is not a historical movie either. What you will get is a mythical fantasy movie on a limited budget with good to descent actors. I want to point out the budget is LIMITED before anyone tries to compare PAGAN QUEEN to LORD OF THE RINGS (which is done on the cover as well)- there are no special effects to speak of. The makers of this movie were not interested in making a LORD OF THE RINGS clone, and that is very apparent, much detail was given to the Czech mythology and Libuse, the founder of Prague.
The acting is mostly alright except for some of the bigger roles, which have been cast with quite good actors, especially American born but Czech raised Winter Ave Zoli as Libuse, Lea Mornar as Vlasta and Veronika Bellová as Kazi, as well as the main male lead Csaba Lucas as Premysl. All actors have strong accents but speak English very well (the movie was shot in English not Czech).Read more ›
Originally made in 2009, a Czech movie but filmed in English this would have been more honest if it had been sold as the tale of the legendary origin of the founding of Prague. Set around 700AD it tells of a people led by a woman Libuse chosen after the death of her father and the attempts by the elders to persuade her to marry one of them to strengthen their nation. Instead of choosing one of the elders she ends up marrying the ploughman who rescued her some time before and he soon loses his initial romantic hero image.
It wasn't a totally disappointing buy though as it led me to look up the legend of the founding of Prague and some of the plot is quite brutal at times just as life would have been in those days but I cannot help but feel disappointed at the sneaky marketing ploys that have been used here.
I tried to find the sources of the following two quotes that were used on the back cover to see in what context they occurred but they remain hidden so we may never know what these writers were on when they wrote these fine lines of purple prose.
With elements of `Warlock' and `Lord of the Rings." - Movies.Com
"An Epic Fantasy Period Piece." - Movie International
If that is an accurate quote then obviously Movie International has no real understanding of the word Epic and is a source to be avoided at all costs.
There are no extras at all.
The DVD cover promotes this "epic" as having "elements of Warlock and The Lord of The Rings". It depicts huge battles and implies a fantasy/magical theme. Rubbish.
What you get is 95 minutes of women in billowy dresses with billowy hair wistfully swanning around, a "queen" who rules over about 30 woodland villagers, "epic" battles between less than a dozen people, no special effects whatsoever, an "epic" backdrop of what must be the same couple of acres of woodland and lots of blatant humping because, without it, there'd be absolutely no storyline whatsoever.
This movie is nothing like the blurb on the back cover.
So no, I didn't just make a naff choice - I made a naff choice because this movie was advertised as something it is absolutely not.
