MARKETA LAZAROVÁ has been hailed as one of the greatest Czech films ever made and it is nothing short of a revelation. This stirring and poetic depiction of a feud between two rival medieval clans is a fierce, epic, and meticulously designed evocation of the clashes between Christianity and paganism, humankind and nature, love and violence. – Janus Films
