School Is the Foundation of Life / Skola zaklad zivota DVD
Happiness: What is happiness? Only a golden tiny fly…! This phrase captures the essence of Martin Frič's classic Czech films from the 1930s, "Škola základ života" and "Cesta do hlubin študákovy duše," inspired by Jaroslav Žák's novels. These films, set in the school environment, resonate across generations, reflecting everyone's memories or ongoing experiences. They brilliantly portray a variety of student and teacher archetypes, from the mischievous student played by Ladislav Pešek, to the sycophantic snitch portrayed by František Filipovský, and the school's heartthrob depicted by Antonín Novotný. The dignified professors are skillfully acted by František Kreuzmann, František Smolík, Ladislav Boháč, Jaroslav Marvan, and Václav Trégl, with Theodor Pištěk as the headmaster. These films remain among the most successful in capturing the spirit of student life.
