Presentiment / Predtucha DVD
The film adaptation of Marie Pujmanová's novella 'Předtucha' captures the first love and emotional turmoil of a teenage girl. She resents her parents' interference in her life and is relieved when they leave for a scientific congress abroad. However, her perspective shifts when she hears a radio report about a train collision involving her parents, making her realize the irreplaceable role of a stable family foundation. Set during the occupation, the novella reflected an atmosphere of uncertainty and anxiety, highlighting the importance of family solidarity and mutual support. The story intrigued Miroslav Cikán, who began filming in 1944 with Jana Dítětová in the lead role, but this project remained unfinished. It was Otakar Vávra who, in 1947, made the eponymous film based on the novella. The fifteen-year-old Jarmila was played by the talented Nataša Tanská, with František Smolík as her father and Marie Brožová as her mother. The film also starred Terezie Brzková, Rudolf Hrušínský Sr., and Josef Vinklář. 'Předtucha' was presented with critical interest at the Locarno International Film Festival in 1948.
