"Dark Blue World"
Directed by Jan Sverak
From the director of Kolya
comes this film that boasts some exciting aerial footage and warm,
old-fashioned sentimentality. Two Czech pilots leave their homeland when
the Nazis invade and enlist in the British Royal Airforce. As the war
progresses, both men have love affairs with the same woman. "Dark
Blue World is Pearl Harbor without the product placements,
without the Hollywood bombast, and certainly without the $100-million-plus
budget...energetic, photogenic" (Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer).
Starring Ondrej Vetchy (Kolya), Krystof Hadek, Tara Fitzgerald (Brassed
Off) and Charles Dance (Gosford Park). English and Czech
with English subtitles. 115 minutes.
