Jan Antonín Pitínský,
A group of teenagers are mysteriously invited to a skiing workshop in the mountains. There are eleven of them, but the camp supervisors insist that there should be only ten, and that one of them is an intruder.
An old man is wandering round a badly signposted and as yet mostly under construction Prague housing estate looking for the high rise block into which he is supposed to be moving with his daughter's family. The old granddad from the countryside likes chatting, nothing escapes his eyes and he wants to give everyone a helping hand.Written by
This is an incredible film that deserves to be better known in the US.
Using a hand-held verite camera style, Panalstory follows the live of several residents of a communist-bloc apartment complex from hell. Shot in a real unfinished housing project, the film is one of those things you can't believe got past the state censors. However don't think this film is only about life in the Soviet bloc. It one of the best universal human life films, I've seen. The filming and editing are superb and once again the director predates filming styles that are all the rage now.
If you live in New York City, the City University cable channel runs this film occasionally.
