Ratings & Reviews

  1. El Biffo's rating of the film Pictures of the Old World

    Banned by the Soviets (who occupied Czechoslovakia in 1968) because they thought that this portrait of elderly people was an unattractive image.

  2. Il secondo maestro del revolver's rating of the film Pictures of the Old World

  3. FISCHER's rating of the film Pictures of the Old World

    Sans jamais tomber dans le misérabilisme facile, ni la dénonciation virulente, l'étonnant et puissant constat de Hanak nous propose un amer et consternant état des lieux de ce que vit le 3e âge en milieu rural, à travers une alternance de plans fixes et de séquences filmées qui aboutit à une oeuvre souvent bouleversante, surtout fort gênante pour la philosophie de bonheur du socialisme triomphant ! www.cinefiches.com

  7. Brady's rating of the film Pictures of the Old World

    The real thing. If this doesn't encourage you to pull the curtains and devoir Czech film, nothing will.

  8. Stevie's rating of the film Pictures of the Old World

    A beautifully poetic study of the elderly living in poverty but maintaining their independence in the face of modernity and "progress". Some of the stories are heartbreaking but they are all truly life-affirming.
