East-European Magic Realism
20 August 2002 | by dromascaSee all my reviews

The Slovak movies series on my cable programming brought me the opportunity to see another more than satisfying film. 'Landscape' (English translation of the title) is located in an imaginary place in rural Slovakia. It is built of a series of non-related episodes, each the length of a short movie. There is no continuity in the action, but there is a continuity in the the chronology, as time passes from the period before the 2nd world war until the contemporary times. The microcosm of the small village is invaded by war, Fascists and Communists alternate at the rule, new forces destroy slowly the traditional way of life. Slowly, the series of of short human stories connect together to make what we may call magic history.

A very good movie, though the stories in the first half seemed to me more coherent and interesting. Tens of small roles and different characters provide more good acting than in one hundred Hollywood movies. I wish this film would have luck and enjoy an international distribution so that it can be seen by broader audiences, and I also hope that after it happens the director will not be invited to the US to direct Mission Impossible 4, and not even Titanic 2.
