Synopsis: This 3-DVD set comprises three integral features from the most creative period of Czechoslovak cinema. Despite being made under the gaze of Government censors, these films achieved a miraculous marriage of content and form despite the most oppressive circumstances.Set includes:A Blonde in Love (1965): Widely regarded as one of the great films of the 60s, this bittersweet romance from Milo Forman, the multiple Oscar-winning director of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and Amadeus, unfolds as a sweetly seductive film but also provides a wry critique of life under totalitarianism. A subtle and beautifully observed social satire which maintains a remarkable balance between despair and hope.The Party and the Guests (1966): Considered the most politically dangerous film made during the short flowering of Czech cinema in the 1960's - and distinguished by being 'banned forever' - N mec's film is a masterpiece of barbed, darkly sinister wit. As a biting satire of authoritarianism and conformity and with its astute observations of human nature, the film's universal relevance remains potent to this day.Larks on a String (1969): Ji ? Menzel searing political comedy audaciously combines black humour with grim reality. Set in a scrap metal yard where political dissidents are interned for 're-education', the film is both a powerful critique of totalitarianism and a celebration of the resilience of the human spirit. The film was banned and remained unseen until 1990, when it was finally released to great acclaim winning the grand prize at the Berlin Film Festival that year.Extras:Filmed appreciation of 'The Party and the Guests' by author and film programmer Peter Hames.Ji ?
