What are people saying?

  • Stevie's rating of the film Ceiling

    A very impressive critique of women's roles in society with a number of Chytilova's colleagues appearing (Milos Forman and a few others). At just over forty minutes running time, this shouldn't really count as a short as its worth is considerable as a feature-length film.
