Marketa Lazarova on DVD

Voted the best Czech film ever made, Frantisek Vlacil’s 1967 film Marketa Lazarova is a powerful and passionate medieval epic set in the mid-13th Century. Based on avant-garde writer Vladislav Vancura’s novel, it follows the rivalry between two warring clans and the doomed love affair. Re-creating an authentic world and owing as much to Bergman and Kurosawa as it does to the rich tapestry of Czech fiction, this ambitious and multi-layered film is the crowning achievement of Vlacil’s career and one of the undiscovered cornerstones of world cinema. With Josef Kemr, Frantisek Velecky, Magda Vasaryova and Ivan Paluch.

Directed by Frantisek Vláčil
