The adventure comedy Little Knights’ Tale takes us to a castle and nearby fortress looming in the vicinity,
surrounded by a deep forest. The rather peaceful life here is turned upside down by an unexpected event.
Martin of Vamberk, a virtuous knight and a caring father of five, is accused of witchcraft and plundering expeditions. And so he departs for the royal court to defend his honor, leaving the fortress in the hands of his eldest son Peter and his siblings. He does not have the faintest idea that the accusation was the work
of his envious, greedy and totally despicable neighbor Albrecht of Krvenos, who wants nothing more to
take possession of his land. It seems that his dastardly deed is all but complete. But Albrecht soon realizes that outwitting a bunch of little knights is sometimes harder than defeating an army of Saracens…
Will the kids snatch victory from the jaws of a much stronger enemy? We, alongside the heroes, will
unravel this secret in a story teeming with alchemy, knights and catapults. Adventure comedy is one of
the most popular genres around the world. But this is the first such effort in contemporary Czech
filmmaking. While it draws on the best of the legacy of Czech cinema for children and families, through its
medieval setting it also offers something entirely new. Although it is an adventure story, it also harbors
humor, hyperbole and romance.
You should not expect to find historical facts in this film. What you can expect is a trip to a sort of paralleluniverse version of the medieval days of yore. We hope you feel at home in it.
