Product Description

A 4-disc set comprising three haunting epics from the godfather of the Czech New Wave along with Tomá Hejtmánek's acclaimed 2003 documentary portrait of Vlá il. A fantastic opportunity to discover this great visionary master of world cinema. Set includes: Marketa Lazarová (1967): Voted the greatest Czech film ever made, a dark and passionate medieval epic that chronicles the doomed love affair of two young lovers set against the rivalry between two warring clans. The Valley of the Bees (1967): Set in 13th century Europe - a raw and powerful moral fable of corruption and fundamentalism. Adelheid (1969): Vlá il's first colour film - an emotional tale of two lovers caught up in the bitter political and emotional aftermath of WWII. Sentiment (2003): The acclaimed documentary portrait of Vlá il - EXCLUSIVE TO THIS BOX SET.

i first bought the single dvd "Marketa Lazarová", which i liked so much that i had to watch frantiseks other movies. frankly, i can recommend them all, especially
adelheid. these films are poetic, subtle and obsevant, the imagery is stunning, words are not important. vlacil makes films for film's sake. that's all there is to say.
enjoy

These films have some of the worst subtitles that I have ever come across! They are huge and jagged affairs that cover approximately 25% of the image, and, despite their size, are rather difficult to read, which ruin the films entirely! Very poor attention to detail from a company that claims otherwise! Very shoddy indeed! These films deserve much better treatment.
