Film music: Zdeněk Liška

December 2017: Marketa Lazarová, Pěnička a Paraplíčko, Medená veža

Svoj výber troch filmov s hudbou Zdeňka Lišku som koncipoval podľa kritéria, aby vynikol extrémne široký kompozičný záber tohto skladateľa, ktorý zásadným spôsobom formoval českú a slovenskú kinematografiu šesťdesiatych až osemdesiatych rokov. Marketa Lazarová ako unikátny príklad schopnosti vcítenia sa (súčasného) tvorcu do myslenia anonymného stredovekého skladateľa a Pěnička a Paraplíčko ako skvostný žánrový obrázok pražského podsvetia so svojim špecifickým hudobným jazykom pokleslých šantánov. Medená veža je fascinujúcim príkladom hudobnej empatie k majestátu hôr a dokonalým pochopením špecifík slovenskej filmovej reči.

Marketa Lazarová

Marketa Lazarová; František Vláčil, 1967, versions: OR

Two families are sworn enemies and they only make peace when their children fall in love and die a violent death. The film is set in the old times when there still was a conflict between paganism and Christianity, and when people behaved in such a way that it was hard to distinguish love from hate and good from evil. >kinoaero.cz Show more

Burglar and Umbrella

Pěnička a paraplíčko; Jiří Sequens st., 1970, OV (cz) | filmotéka; Jiří Sequens st., 1970, versions: OR

The magic of the First Republic underworld – the galerka (in Prague’s Žižkov quarter) – formed a major component of the popular television series Hříšní lidé města pražského (The Sinful People of Prague, 1968). Inspired by a book from author Jiří Marek, and adapted for the screen by writer-director Jiří Sequens, this 1970 film shifts the old world criminal comedy atmosphere, as well as the series’ characters, from the small to the big screen. The main protagonist – the astute police administrator Vacátko, portrayed by Jaroslav Marvan – becomes entangled in the tragic story of reckless prostitute Anča, nicknamed “Paraplíčko”, and her lover, the safe cracker Pěnička. The romantic drama set in interwar Prague sees Jiřina Bohdalová and Radoslav Brzobohatý in the lead roles. Police administrator Vacátko would feature in three further feature films and one television film. Pěnička a Paraplíčko (Burglar and Umbrella) is marked by a major effort by its makers to evoke the period atmosphere with musical numbers, which tilt this crime comedy towards being an actual musical. >filmovyprehled.cz Show more
