MARKETA LAZAROVÁ – Blu-Ray & DVD Editions
[color=rgb(0,0,0);font-family:Tahoma;font-size:16px;]In its home country, František Vlácil’s [/color]Marketa Lazarová[color=rgb(0,0,0);font-family:Tahoma;font-size:16px;] has been hailed as the greatest Czech film ever made; for many U.S. viewers, it will be a revelation. Based on a novel by Vladislav Vancura, this stirring and poetic depiction of a feud between two rival medieval clans is a fierce, epic, and meticulously designed evocation of the clashes between Christianity and paganism, humankind and nature, love and violence. Vlácil’s approach was to re-create the textures and mentalities of a long-ago way of life, rather than to make a conventional historical drama, and the result is dazzling. With its inventive widescreen cinematography, editing, and sound design, [/color]Marketa Lazarová[color=rgb(0,0,0);font-family:Tahoma;font-size:16px;] is an experimental action film.[/color]
