Centered around the true story of iconic Czech warlord Jan Žižka, Petr Jákl’s Medieval charts the narrative of one of the only 7 generals in history to never lose a battle. The film marries a progression that showcases a man driven by morals and his political inclinations in the backdrop of a romance that brews between him and a a captive.
While we have witnessed a wee too many sword fights and external conflict that is not grounded in contemporary narrative, movies like The Last Dual have really turned things around with an awakening that has made filmmakers think about the effects these historical dramas have on the world now.
Basically a Czech production, director Petr Jakl is working from a story by Petr Jakl Sr. and Kevin Bernhardt. Following Jan Zizka played by Ben Foster after he is coerced by Lord Boresh (Michael Caine) to kidnap Lord Rosenberg’s fiance Lady Katherine (played by Sophie Lowe), leading to a triggering reaction from the French army, which is then sent to battle in order to free her. However, things get overly complicated when Zizka and Katherine fall in love.
The film also stars Matthew Goode, Til Schweiger, William Moseley, Wener Daehn, and Roland Møller in pivotal roles.
