'When the Sun was God' or 'Stara Basn' is an outstanding story, with fast action, bloody battles, romance, territorial feuds, exceptional visual scenes and spectacular costumes.

'Stara Basn' (2003), produced and directed by Jerzy (George) Hoffman, presents us with one of Poland's oldest legends on film. This is a story from Poland's prehistory pagan time; a story that has been told and re-told and Hoffman does a fantastic retelling of this story on film, giving the viewer an indication of how Poland was back then.

In this powerful tale, the fates of the characters interlace in an everlasting fight between good and evil and in the human passions of love, hatred and greed for power.

The film is based on an 1876 novel by Józef Kraszewski. The film was released in the UK (2011) under the title 'Army of Valhalla'.

If you enjoy historical movies you have to watch this one.
