 Všetkých päť spomenutých filmov sa ocitlo v zúženom výbere americkej filmovej akadémie na cenu Oscar v kategórii najlepší cudzojazyčný film. V októbri vám vo FILMOTÉKE ponúkame možnosť vidieť na plátne všetky nominované filmy a overiť si, nakoľko zaslúžené bolo víťazstvo československej vojnovej drámy Obchod na korze. V silnej konkurencii totiž Obchod na korze porazil aj film známeho talianskeho režiséra Vittoria De Sicu Manželstvo po taliansky či sondu začiatku ľúbostného pomeru s názvom Drahý John, v ktorej jej režisér Lars-Magnus Lindgren nadväzuje na najvýznamnejšieho švédskeho režiséra Ingmara Bergmana. Štylisticky najvýraznejším je pre zmenu japonský poviedkový film Kwaidan, v rámci morálnej otázky Obchodu na korze výrazne konkuruje grécky film Krv na zemi.

Dear John

Käre John; Lars-Magnus Lindgren, 1964, OV/švéd., dán./ Filmotéka; Lars-Magnus Lindgren, 1964, versions: CS

John is a shipmaster on a very small transportation boat which regularly attends a very small harbour to buy food, actually from Anna's father. She is a waitress and has a young daughter. She tells John that her name is Anita. They have met many times, but their first personal meeting is when both are swimming in early morning. John is asked to have morning coffee with Anna's family. He invites her and her child to a trip to Zoo in Copenhagen. Both have genuine feelings for each other. There are lovely three-some scenes when John is proud of "being" a father, and beautiful love scenes. Christina Schollin's naked body is cute but never obtrusive. But at that time girls were depreciated if they "gave in" too soon. So these scenes repeatedly alternate with hot misunderstandings, well-known exactly when two people with genuine feelings fear misunderstandings and try to preclude them. In the last minutes of the movie, when each has left the "harbour village" on the next day, and John has learned the real name of "Anita" and calls her from the boat, both realise without saying anything about it, that this is the beginning of a long relationship based on mutual feelings.
