The Very Late Afternoon of a Faun (Faunovo velmi pozdní odpoledne)

Chytilová adapted Jiří Brdečka’s story about a middle-aged lecherous man and ‘determined erotic’, and in doing so focused on the gap between sexual fantasy and reality. As pensioners claim the man as their own, the young ladies he picks up increasingly differ from his hopes and expectations. It was Chytilová’s only post-invasion collaboration with writer-designer Ester Krumbachová, who worked with her on Daisies and The Fruit of Paradise.

Czechoslovakia 1983, directed by Věra Chytilová, with Leoš Suchařípa, Libuše Pospíšilová, Ivan Vyskočil, 100 min, 35mm, with English subtitles
