Marketa Lazarova

John Edmond, on the Senses of Cinema website, summarises the film better than I could:
"Marketa Lazarová, book and film, is a brutally wry story of the birth of the Czech nation: the internecine squabbles of Czech tribes fused through their varying relationship with the coming of the Germans and Christianity"

Many commentators see a commonality with Tarkovsky's "Andrei Rublev" but, like Edmond, my first thought was Aleksei German's "Hard to Be a God".

An excellent restoration. I'd imagine utilising the same master as the US Region A Blu ray edition.

Good service, as always from CZECHMOVIE. And the gods of current postage delays looked down: Czech Republic to Australia in 5 days.


Marketa Lazarova Remastered
A cinematic rhapsody set in medieval times, 'Marketa Lazarová' is a tale of outlaws and a fallen daughter from a noble family, inspired by V. Vančura's novel. The story unfolds in the mid-13th century, an era when highwaymen roamed royal roads, Christianity battled pagan beliefs, and life was cheap, yet love as intense as today. The film's heroine, Marketa, forsakes her love for God for a profound love for a man, Mikoláš. Celebrated for its opulence, this film captivated audiences with its visual imagination, beauty of narrative, and raw human actions. Directed by František Vláčil and starring Magda Vášáryová, Josef Kemr, and others, it took nearly seven years to create. Acclaimed nationally and internationally, 'Marketa Lazarová' remains a breathtaking experience, surpassing its literary source in cinematic expression.
