18. februára oslávi 85. narodeniny významný český režisér Miloš Forman. Na rozdiel od svojich kolegov z československej novej vlny, ako boli Věra Chytilová, Jiří Menzel, Jan Němec či Evald Schorm, na pražskej FAMU vyštudoval dramaturgiu, a nie réžiu (ostatní boli absolventmi práve odboru réžie). V prvej polovici 60. rokov 20. storočia nakrútil v Československu viacero pozoruhodných filmov, ktoré kritici a historici označovali za veristické. Na filmoch Lásky jedné plavovlásky Hoří, má panenko úzko spolupracoval s Ivanom Passerom a Jaroslavom Papouškom. Oba sa ocitli v úzkom výbere filmov nominovaných na Oscara za najlepší cudzojazyčný film (v roku 1967, keď boli nominované Lásky jedné plavovlásky,vyhral film Clauda Leloucha Muž a žena a o dva roky neskôr zase film Sergeja Bondarčuka Vojna a mier). Už v tomto ranom období svojej tvorby nadviazal Forman spoluprácu s kameramanom Miroslavom Ondříčkom. V druhej polovici 60. rokov Forman vycestoval do Spojených štátov amerických. Vo svojom prvom americkom filme Taking Off spracúval podobné témy ako vo svojich československých filmoch – generačný konflikt a problematický vzťah jedinca a spoločnosti. Tieto témy tvoria podhubie aj jeho neskorších filmov. Za svoj nasledujúci film Prelet nad kukučím hniezdom získal päť hlavných Oscarov (najlepší film, najlepšia réžia, najlepší mužský herecký výkon v hlavnej úlohe, najlepší ženský herecký výkon v hlavnej úlohe, najlepší adaptovaný scenár). Pri príležitosti slávnostného udeľovania prestížnych cien bolo umožnené jeho synom, dvojičkám Petrovi a Matějovi, vycestovať za ním do Spojených štátov. Forman mohol aj na niektorých ďalších amerických filmoch spolupracovať s Miroslavom Ondříčkom (Taking Off, Vlasy, Ragtime), Amadea dokonca mohol čiastočne nakrúcať v Československu (aj za tento film získal Oscara za réžiu). Miloš Forman je jedným z vo svete najznámejších režisérov českého pôvodu.

The Firemen's Ball

Hoří, má panenko; Miloš Forman, 1967, versions: OR : ces

A milestone of the Czech New Wave, Milos Forman’s first color film The Firemen’s Ball (Hori, ma panenko) is both a dazzling comedy and a provocative political satire. A hilarious saga of good intentions confounded, the story chronicles a firemen’s ball where nothing goes right—from a beauty pageant whose reluctant participants embarrass the organizers to a lottery from which nearly all the prizes are pilfered. Presumed to be a commentary on the floundering Czech leadership, the film was “banned forever” in Czechoslovakia following the Russian invasion and prompted Forman’s move to America. The film is an excursion into the Czech petit-bourgeois relationships with their short lasting friendships, empty heads, “long” fingers, and no conscience whatsoever. All of these characteristics are portrayed against the background of a firemen’s ball. The director Miloš Forman and his cinematographer Miroslav Ondříček are truly merciless in their caricature of the Czech national character. The comedy soon becomes a tragic farce. Great attention is paid to details, gestures and dialogues. Show more

Visions of Eight

Visions of Eight; rôzni, 100´, 1973, DB (cz) | filmotéka; Director: various, 1973, versions: CD

Visions of Eight is a film about the personal dreams which make the Olympic Games transcend the physical into the spiritual. when granted the authority to record the 1972 official film of the Games, the Wolper Organization elected to eschew the traditional documentary approach in favour of the human stories spelled out during the contests. Although the cameras recorded the tragic events surrounding the death of the Israli athletes, the film remains a non - political tribute to all the contestants and to the spirit of the Olympic Games.. Previous Olympic films were essentially sports reportage, an area now amply covered by television. This film is seen through the eyes of eight great directors, each of whom interpreted that part of the Olympiad spectacle that interested them most. Show more
