It's one of the best movies i have ever seen. As simple as that, it's not easy to watch a black and white movie, with minimum dialogue, that's almost 3 hours long, and not get bored at all. The painted bird made it.
The script is masterfully divided into chapters, that give a feeling of constant progress and action, also the editing is great and has some great takes of czech beautiful and peaceful nature in contrast with the cruel human beings. IT's just great
