Exciting Prague Leporello. Prague, the Restless Heart of Europe (1984), a film by Vera Chytilova

Tomas Hucko



Věra Chytilova’s film was created during the culmination of processes related to the Czechoslovak normalization. Prague… is not only a highly stylized film essay that provides the viewer with a fascinating visual experience and deep emotions, but evokes the themes of a substantive philosophical debate in conjunction with the knowledge of Prague’s genius loci. Chytilova’s film considers the history and role of humans, taking as a starting point the history of Prague. Therefore, the film still inspires.
