Bask in the desolate snowy landscapes of this beloved Czech epic, the hallucinatory tale of two clans battling in the 13th century. No standard stodgy historical drama, Marketa Lazarova turns life (and death) in the Middle Ages into an overwhelming cinematic experience, with intricate ear-ringing sound and dazzling widescreen monochrome photography.

In Czech and German with English subtitles

A film by František Vláčil
