Directed by Jan Nemec, Vera Chytilova, Jaromil Jires, Jiri Menzel, Evald Schorm | 1966

With Pavla Marsalkova, Ferdinand Kruta, Milos Ctrnacty, Alois Vachek, Emil Iserle

A manifesto of the Czechoslovak New Wave, this anthology of five short films by five rising directors is based on a book by the celebrated writer Bohumil Hrabal. Absurdist in style, with a heightened attention to the individual, Hrabal’s work broke with the socialist realism that dominated the era. Nemec’s story ("The Imposters") is the simplest stylistically, chronicling two elderly men who share stories of their illustrious life careers while spending time together in a hospital. Ultimately they reveal themselves to be masters of the art of embellishment.
