Personal Quote:

[on Ester Krumbachová] Ester Krumbachová was a muse, a shadowy eminence of films from the 1960s. She was multi-talented: she wrote, made costumes and designs, and she influenced not only me but also Vera Chytilová. In addition, Otakar Vávra and Karel Kachyna made their best films in co-operation with her. She was a person who very much influenced Czech film in a positive way. See more »
