Ondrej, a young boy who loves bees and bats, is introduced to his new mother, a woman much younger than his father. Her brings her a bowl of flower petals which she starts to throw in the air and then gives out a shriek, as she discovers several bats in the bottom of the bowl. In a rage, Ondrej's father picks the boy up and hurls him against a wall. Then as the boy lays in a stupor the father promises the Holy Virgin to dedicate the boy to her if she will spare his life. The boy lives and Ondrej is raised in a strict monastic order, where he is mentored by a very pious warrior monk, Armin.

"29.3 Tsekkoslovakia/Vlacil Vlacilista sukeutui yksi suosikkiohjaajistani enkä osaa oikein eritellä että miksi. Lyijynraskaan (mutta erinomaisen) Marketa Lazarovan kanssa samoilla sessareilla tehty Valley of the Bees on raikas kuin lasi lähdevettä. Sen kieli ja symbolismi on niin selkeää että se on jo arvoituksellista. Ristiritarina ikänsä (ehkä) homostellut päähenkilö karkaa luostarista ja palaa kotilinnaansa prinssinä perimään saataviaan. Häntä lähtee jäljittämään ritar"
