Adelheid
Adelheid


Dir.: Frantisek Vl‡cil
Cast: Petr Cepek, Emma Cern‡, Jan Vostrcil, Jana Krupickov‡, Pavel Landovsk?
Genre: Drama


In the aftermath of World War II, a former Czech soldier takes charge of a manor formerly owned by a German family. He falls in love with the daughter, who is now a maid, and is forced to confront the stress between his love and his conscience when he discovers her sheltering her German-soldier brother.

The first colour film by Czech master Frantiek Vlčil (director of the dazzling The Valley of the Bees and Marketa Lazarov), Adelheid is a tragic love story, a controversial and emotional tale of two lovers trapped in the march of history. Set in the aftermath of WWII, the film charts the relationship between Viktor, a Czech airman returning home who is assigned a large Sudetenland mansion on the Czech-German border, and Adelheid, daughter of the former Nazi owner, who is allocated to him as a servant. Adelheid and Viktor are gradually attracted to each other and although neither speaks the other's language, they begin a tentative - but doomed - affair. A compelling love story that transcends the absence of verbal communication highlighting the pain of a country in defeat, Adelheid was also the first film to controversially address the Czech treatment of German's during the expulsions of the mid-1940's
