VIIMNE RELIIKVIA THE LAST RELIC

What would the Baltic be without never-ending struggles for freedom? As little as its cinema would be without its mammoth historical epics with their tendency towards fairy tale settings and musical ambitions. THE LAST RELIC, set in 16 century Livonia, fulfils both inclinations. The romanticism of courtly love meets adventure extravaganza, when genre master Kromanov tackles the story of a young knight’s love for the abbess’ niece Agnes, who herself only has eyes for Gabriel, the Estonian Robin Hood. A farmers’ rebellion against nobility and convent. Rapiers, broadswords and plenty of sheep. Topped with wonderful songs. Enough to make a film lover’s heart go pitter-patter.
