What Other Items Do Customers Buy After Viewing This Item?
Although made in 1970, The Ear (Ucho) was immediately banned by the Czech authorities and remained unseen for twenty years, being finally released only after the Velvet Revolution took place in Czechoslovakia . This landmark film is an extraordinary mix of one of the most direct indictments of life under an oppressive totalitarian system and a not-so-private examination of a disintegrating marital relationship.
" By far the best of the Czech movies banned after Dubcek was toppled in 1969" -- Time Out
" Directed with awesome control... masterly" **** -- Radio Times
" The Ear is a surprisingly commercial thriller that tangles with dark undercurrents - a movie ripe for rediscovery" -- Philadelphia City

Tight script, tight direction and great acting make this film a truly memorable examination of Cold War paranoia from the "other" side. Worth every penny...
Kachyna's potent camerawork and brilliant composition, makes the viewer feel as if he/she are the eyes of the "Ears". The couple are constantly in fear of being over heard, being careful not to discuss certain matters in various rooms. Always referring to recording devices as "The Ear", they lower their voices and close doors before speaking. Cleverly, Kachyna has the characters dressed (for most of the film) in their night clothes, as the possibility of being seen has not crossed their minds. We, the viewer, feel like the unsuspected camera, recording their movements and body language as well as eves-dropping on their conversations.
The acting of the cast is superb, the leads Radoslav Brzobohatý and Jiřina Bohdalová both work brilliantly together. The characters are two extremes, drunken, loud and emotional Anna ( Bohdalova) and angry, cautious, impatient Ludvík, makes this study a captivating viewing. The cinematography, as I have already mentioned, is excellent, using black and white to the best of it's advantages. The effect that director Karel Kachyna causes makes me regret the accessibility of his other achievements, as this is his only film on DVD.Read more ›
