  1. mootz15's rating of the film Jakub

    An utterly spellbinding film about a forgotten people without a homeland (the Ruthenians) and their suffering during and after WW2. The soundtrack (which in itself is a small masterpiece with its droning soundscapes, field recordings and Orthodox church music) lends the whole thing an almost Gothic feel. First watched this on MUBI several years ago and I'm thrilled it's made a comeback (DVD impossible to get).

  2. tangoletal's rating of the film Jakub

    Un excelente documental que honra la gran tradición de la fotografía checa.

  3. kartina obskura's rating of the film Jakub

    jana sevcikova´s documentary work is great (my favorite is "old believers"). i love the mixture of her raw camera capturing poetic moments (horses in the snow, two children at the window..) and the sadness of subjects. another great czechoslovakian female documantary director - drahomira vihanova. both highly recommended.

  4. msmichel's rating of the film Jakub

    Interesting in the sense of contradicting collective memory as the residents of the villiage are quized about the late Jakub Popovich who serves as the thread in examining a displaced people. B&W imagery is much more successful than the narrative/interview process.

    Excellent documentary. Full of humanism. Great soundtrack. Beautiful and gloomy.
