The Czechoslovak New Wave is here ushered in by František Vláčil's first film, a beautiful poetic piece. His best films are surely Adelheid, Snake's Venom and his three superb pieces set in the Middle Ages -- The Devil's Trap, The Valley of the Bees and Marketa Lazarová -- which can stand alongside Kenji Mizoguchi's great historical films The Story of the Last Chrysanthemums and Sansho the Bailiff. Other excellent Czechoslovak New Wave films are When the Cat Comes, Dragon's Return, A Shop on Main Street, Intimate Lighting and Loves of a Blonde.
