"Czech New Wave Set"
1964-1969
Directed by Vera Chytilova/Jaromil Jires/Jiri Menzel/Oldrich Lipsky/Frantisek Vlacil

Five vital works of 1960's Czech cinema.
Daisies (Vera Chytilova, 1966, 74 mins.): Two uninhibited young women (both named Marie) turn against the numbing state of society in a madcap flurry of pranks and material destruction. "...the most adventurous and anarchic Czech movie of the 1960s" (The Faber Companion to Foreign Films).
The Joke (Jaromil Jires, 1968, 80 mins.): Based on a novel by Milan Kundera (The Unbearable Lightness of Being) and co-scripted by the author, this dark and ironic film was shot during the Prague Spring of 1968. After ending a postcard with a humorous reference to Trotsky, a young man is sentenced to years of hard labor for his joke. Upon his release, he sets out to take revenge.
Capricious Summer
(Jiri Menzel, 1967, 74 mins.): Three middle-aged friends in a sleepy, second-class resort town are thrown into a state of sexual longing and frustration when a tightrope walker arrives with his beautiful young assistant. Director Jiri Menzel (Closely Watched Trains) also plays the tightrope walker in this gentle, wistful comedy.
Lemonade Joe
(Oldrich Lipsky, 1964, 87 mins.): At the Trigger Whiskey Saloon, a beautiful temperance crusader is threatened by hard-drinking villains. Riding to her rescue is Lemonade Joe, who--as his moniker indicates--doesn't touch the "fire water." A sweet and often very funny spoof of Hollywood westerns.
Adelheid (Frantisek Vlacil, 1969, 99 mins.): Set in the aftermath of World War II, this powerful drama concerns a former Czech soldier who inherits a manor once owned by a German family. He falls in love with Adelheid, the daughter of the previous owner, who has been reduced to servant status. "...a profound analysis of the human distortions caused by ideology" (Peter Hames, Central Europe Review). All films in Czech with English subtitles.  Five-tape set.

414 minutes.
