Karel Kachyna West Germany, 1970

Noli Manaig's rating of the film Jumping Over Puddles Again

Getting long in the tooth, those minute particulars associated with the lore of childhood. Set-pieces of sickness & convalescence, the familial idyll & drama, the high jinks peculiar to children, & the first kiss by a girl are all here, but in a rather familiar & middlingly enjoyable way. Sometimes evocatively dream-like, but again uneven--it can just as be prosaic.
