Could have been ever so much better
11 June 2001 | by (Prague, Czech Republic) – See all my reviews

I'd been looking forward to seeing this film. Everyone'd been telling me how wonderful it was and that I should see it. Maybe you ought to bear that in mind when reading that I was greatly underwhelmed by this film. I felt it tried desperately to be more than it was. Unfortunately, the classic Czech book on which it's based blows it out of the water. Perhaps I was tired of all the young female characters behaving like idiots and the old female characters behaving reprehensibly. Perhaps it was the flimsy linking device-a cute child shrilly piping away on a tin whistle. That brat popped up often enough to get a groan out of the audience. I can say one, and only one thing, to recommend this film. It was filmed beautifully. However,the cinematography can't carry the whole show. If you're looking for good Czech (or Central European) films, I'd recommend Pelisky, Je Treba Zabit Sekala, Closely Watched Trains, Pytlakova Schovanka or Krvavy Roman. The list could go on.
