Marketa Lazarová

(František Vláčil, 1967)

Wed, Sep 3, 2014 7 PM

Considered by many to be the greatest Czech film ever made, this dazzling adaptation of a purportedly unfilmable novel by Vladislav Vančura recreates the textures and mentalities of medieval life with inventive widescreen cinematography, editing, and sound design. The stirring depiction of a feud between two rival clans is a fierce, epic, and meticulously designed evocation of the clashes between Christianity and paganism, humankind and nature, love and violence. (165 mins., 35mm)
