DVD If I Had a Gun

If I had a Gun - DVD Cover

This is a tragicomic story about boys who even in times of war remember how to play soldiers, dream of heroic deeds, spy on girls, show of in front of friends, and make up fantastic adventures. With the same naive childishness they face grim events of war and everyday village life. Despite the impact of early normalization introduced by the regime, director Stefan Uher succeeded in turning Milan Ferko and Elo Havetta‘s screenplay into a vivid picture on a theme so often romanticized and distorted by ideology.

Run Time: 86 min.
Director: Stefan Uher

DVD Wild Lillies

Wild Lillies - DVD Cover

The second, and unfortunately, the last feature film made by a unique talent among Slovak filmmakers, Elo Havetta, is one of the most original pictures of Slovak cinematography. The film was conceived as a paraphrase of Vincent Sikula’s prose, the tragicomic episodes of which screenwriter Lubor Dohnal and Havetta composed into a dramatic story. The main characters are veterans coming home from the First World War. And while they feel a need to find a home and settle down, they are also driven by a passion for a vagrant’s free life.

Run Time: 77 min
Director: Elo Havetta
Cast: Lotar Radvanyi, Vladimir Kostovic, Zofia Martisova, Ivan Krivosudsky, Emil Tomascik, Ludovit Kroner, Jan Melkovic, Marian Filadelfi, Augustin Kuban, Viliam F. Sikula, Vincent

DVD Pacho, the Brigand of Hybe

Pacho the Brigand of Hybe - DVD Cover

Martin Tapak’s Pacho, the Brigand of Hybe was based on the story written by Peter Jaros as a humorous resemblance of the Slovak legendary hero Juro Janosik spiced up with numerous cliches of official Slovak folklore. The resulting picture is one of the very few, if not the only truly well-done Slovak film parody. Jozef Kroner’s unforgettable performance in the lead role, supported by the witty dialogues written by classic Slovak comedians Milan Lasica and Julius Satinsky made the film into a unique phenomenon of Slovak cinematographic tradition.

Run Time: 85 min.
Director: Martin Tapak
Cast: Jozef Kroner, Dusan Blaskovic, Karol Calik, Slavo Zahradnik, Marian Labuda and others

DVD Red Wine I-II

Red Wine I - II - DVD Cover

An epic saga of the Habdza family of vineyard keepers set in western Slovakian countryside at the beginning of the 20th century. Director Andrej Lettrich‘s novel adaptation talks of plotting, forbidden love, family discord, and struggle for heritage and power. The story is engaging thanks to the impressive performances of popular actors, dramatic situations, and sensitive music. Red Wine is not so much inventive in terms of auteurship as it is a work of excellent craftsmanship. The resulting picture is a costume production neatly adapted to the character of Slovak rural life in the past.

Pink Dreams - DVD Cover

An amiable picture about entering adulthood, great dreams, and the first – forbidden – love of a white postman, Jakub, and a pretty Gypsy girl, Jolanka.
