Favourite Czech film/s

Postby Katie/Katerina » 16-Feb-09 15:14

I've a fair few new-er DVDs here in the Uk that have been bought on my last few trips to Prague and/or as presents for me for birthday/xmas presents, but was just wondering what Czech films (or programmes) other posters like, in case I've missed a gem or two. I love films in general, especially European, Japanese and Korean cinema, but since dvds in Czech tend to be quite expensive, when I arrive I want to be careful of my spending- the Uk has somewhat spoilt me in terms of buying dvds from Play.com and similar sites.


My recommends?

Obcena Skola
Horem Padem
Prebehy Obycejneho Silenstvi (apologies but I can't get Czech letters)
Samotari
Jedna Ruka Netleska
Musime si Pomahat

and, of course.... Pelisky :) Even the intro music makes me smile!

Now you can buy a lot of DVDs in newstands for as little as 49 Kc.

I will recommend Tmavomodrý svět (Dark Blue World), it is way different then the others you mentioned. Kolja (Kolya) is good as well. From recent years I like Obsluhoval jsem anglického krále (I served the king of England).

Along with Pelíšky, my three favourite Czech films, Alexx. And as for old films, try Hoři, má panenko or Vrchni, Prchni and completely different but beautiful, Amadeus.

Tmavomodrý Svět was shown on BBC recently. One of the best films i've seen in a long time. Well recommended..

Thank you, kibicz. I'm not going to be able to get that annoying little tune out of my head all day now! But it must be popular, it's been watched over 46,000 times! (And only half of them by kibicz!)

Hi

I don't agree Amadeus is a Czech film although its director is Czech American.

One of my favourite Czech films that I would recommend is Svatební cesta do Jiljí. To get a better idea of some more Czech movies, you may want to check out http://www.meteleskublesku.cz with photos and audio clips from a good number of pictures made mainly in the times of communist rule.

For more comprehensive listing of Czech movie production, go to http://cs.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seznam_čes ... onologicky).
(Hey, there are some problems with this URL. To my surpirse is contains Czech diacritics and parentheses. You need to copy it up to the closing parenthesis.)

Have fun...

Jirka
