Prague – Restless Heart of Europe

Movies, Documentary
A restless pitch indeed marks this compelling, visually flamboyant, poetic history of Prague (part of an Italian TV series on the main cultural cites of Europe). Coming on like a Hockney photo collage, it captures the extraordinary collisions of landscape, architecture and events, moving from vista to detail, archive to overseen incident (there's a sequence of mass calisthenics scored and choreographed to great effect), the whole held together by Chytilová's loving gaze.
