Storyline

A historic mega-film, one family saga, three generations (1887 -1917) assimilated to the bee community in the hive. The queen bee serves as a big mother that symbolizes the family and national roots, the power and meaning of tradition and the return to it. The mosaic of the bricklaying Pichanda family's lives is made of love, hope, hard work, human understanding and also the tragedies of economic crisis, war and human malice. Dreams, symbols, and life in all its forms create a colored rainbow spanning from birth to death and from mystery to reality and back. Written by Anonymous

Marvellously enchanting beautiful dreamlike film.
23 May 2006 | by (Helsingfors, Finland) – See all my reviews

I saw this film 20 years ago and it won't fade in my memory. . The scenography is colorful and very culturally bound to the eastern middle europe where you get to share the lives of a big family's men, women and children where magic plays a supporting role in the same way as in Bergman's "Fanny and Alexander" ,i.e. not too much to make the surrealism unbelievable. The films fantastic flowery bouquet is also reminiscent of Michalkows "Oci crni""Black Eyes" or "Cinema Paradiso" by Tornatore. Sadly it isn't yet available on DVD, and I live in hope that it and as many more of Jakubiskos films as possible will soon be and with subtitles in as many languages as possible.
