Romantic drama: the story of Christoffer and Maja's trip to the city of Prague - a beautiful, aging city, but also a city choked by a rigid and dated eastern-block mentality. PRAG is the story of a distant, ever-absent father who, even after passing away, traumatizes all who have known him. And PRAG is the story of a marriage on the verge of collapse, in which Christoffer wants one thing and Maja another. A story of an old love, constantly transformed; at once, rooted, fragile, vulnerable, forgotten and rediscovered. A marriage where secrets, one after the other, come bursting out of the closet. Written by
Prag is not only a good feature with a tense atmosphere between two people who are breaking up. It is also a very well shot production (by DoP Jørgen Johansson) who has exploited the Digital Intermediate post production route to the hilt but in a very subtle way. Almost every shot has been treated with advanced secondary color corrections and windows. Red's and blue's are emphasized while most of the images remain slightly desaturated. The shooting format is s35 (3-perf.) flat stretched to 2:35 scope for the cinema release. The television version is 1:78 (16:9) retaining full height aspect ration. Enjoy this production hopefully digitally projected or on HD DVD.
