Zelary

Magnificent WWII epic, nominated for the 2004 Academy Award for Best Foreign Film.

 

Zelary
Ondrej Trojan / Czech Republic, Austria & Slovak Republic / 2003 / 150 min

Ana Geislerová, György Cserhalmi, Jaroslava Adamová, Miroslav Donutil, Jaroslav Dusek, Iva Bittová

Fleeing the Gestapo, resistance worker Eliska is forced to abandon her lover and home, and take sanctuary in the remote mountain village of Zelary, where daily life has gone undisturbed for centuries.

 

There, she assumes a new identity, ""marries"" a kindly local farmer, and with great reluctance, submits to her new, rural lifestyle – only to discover there an unexpected sense of purpose and community ... until, finally, the soldiers come.

 

An epic in the tradition of David Lean, this handsome production is a crowdpleaser par excellence: a powerfully moving tale of love, courage and sacrifice.
