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.

5.0 out of 5 stars hypnotising 15 Mar 2011
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

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing! 17 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase
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.
