a film poetry based on the written poetry
22 August 1999 | by See all my reviews

There probably are not many movies whose screenplay is written by a poet based on his own poem. Well, this is the case. Frankly, I would never expect Mr. Vavra, who is best known for his historical epic on the Husite uprising in Bohemia and for some socialist realism before and after that, to make a film like this. The movie is extremely poetic, but at the same time, the visuals are firmly grounded in reality and the buzzing of insects in the outdoors is omnipresent. The plot is simple: a student is spending a summer back in his home village, taking care of his grandfather on his deathbed while dealing with his own "growing up". The movie allegedly contains the most erotic scene in Czechoslovak cinema - when the youngster watches a woman bathing in the river.

The title translates into English as "A Romance for Fluegelhorn". Ever since I saw the film for the first time, I have liked that instrument.
