"What a happy woman!"
26 August 2000 | by (Cape Town, South Africa) – See all my reviews

"Grandmother" is a highly romanticized autobiographical novel by a Czech 19th century writer, Bozena Nemcova. It's a classical, compulsory reading in Czech schools, about a wise, working-class woman, happier in her simplicity and good heart than the nobles whom she serves. If at all true, her childhood with her granny must have been one of very few happy periods in Nemcova's life. Of course, not everything is serene, Nemcova was too good a writer for that, there is also Nemcova's Ophelia, crazy Viktorka, running in the forests after being seduced and abandoned (remember this was early 19th century). The scenes with Viktorka are the most striking and memorable in this excellent film released during the Nazi occupation of Czechoslovakia to boost the people's morale.
