Thanks to the method František Vláčil adopted for his film narrative, this pivotal work of Czech cinema, now wonderfully restored, is not only a uniquely authentic and powerful exploration into the past but also a disquieting and timeless testimony of the burden and impenetrability of the human lot, exposed to the perpetual conflict of opposites.
