Faithless Marijka / Marijka nevernice DVD
Renowned filmmaker Vladislav Vančura's ambitious cinematic experiment, inspired by Ivan Olbracht's theme, unfolds in the former Carpathian Ruthenia. It portrays not only the poverty and backwardness of the region but also the simmering passions leading to irreparable deeds. The director incorporated innovative techniques of the era, notably stripping the story of unnecessary sentimentality. He relied on completely unknown faces, speaking in an almost incomprehensible dialect, to reveal the complex web of emotions experienced by the main character. Boldly, he even emphasized daring erotic elements in the early 1930s. This ambitious work, produced outside of major studios, unfortunately met with public disinterest, possibly exacerbated by the reduced linguistic intelligibility.
