Pearls of the Deep

Perličky na dně

Cehoslovacia, 1965
Comedie, Antologie


A manifesto of the Czechoslovak New Wave, this anthology of five short films by five rising directors is based on a book by the celebrated writer Bohumil Hrabal. Absurdist in style, with a heightened attention to the individual, Hrabal’s work broke with the socialist realism that dominated the era.

Recenzii ale criticilor

Shot in Academy ratio and in black-and-white, Pearls of the Deep privileges the cinéma vérité-like location shooting and natural lighting beloved of the New Wave. Yet it can also accommodate Chytilová’s beautiful play with textures and super-slow motion in Automat Svět (At the World Cafeteria), pointing to the radical experimentation which would fully blossom between her and Kučera in Sedmikrásky (Daisies, 1966) and Ovoce stromů rajských jíme (Fruit of Paradise, 1969).
