The Falcon (1981) -- Highly acclaimed Serbian swashbuckling tale of love and betrayal. In late 14th century medieval Serbia becomes the target of Ottoman invaders. One of their renegade gangs burns the castle and takes the young wife of Banovic Strahinja, a respected Serbian noble. Banovic Strahinja begins a long and almost futile quest for his wife despite everybody else's doubts of her fidelity.
The film is based on an old Serbian epic song. Dragan Nikolic is brilliant as Vlah Alija, with no other than Franco Nero as Banovic Strahinja. Rade Serbedzija is exceptional as a crazy dervish and the scene where he is impaled by the Turks is more than powerful. A superb movie that really needs to be seen.
