The Battle of Kosovo - 1389
27 July 2006 | by dada_nesoSee all my reviews

Historic events, such as the Battle of Kosovo in the 14th century play a major role in the development of the Serbian epics. This is great,great movie something like Braveheart with Mel Gibson. Regards. Highly recommended for people older then 13. PG 13. Serbian with English subtitles. Belgrade TV production on the Kosovo battle of 1389 with historical facts. Recommended because this is the defeat by the Ottoman Muslim Turks that is still celebrated by Serbs today, and helps explain their strongly negative attitude to ethnic Albanians and Bosnian Muslims. The script for the original play was written by poet Ljubomir Simovic .
