- ((PREZIT SVUJ ZIVOT (TEORIE A PRAXE)) 2010, Jan Svankmajer, Czech Republic/Slovakia/Japan, 109 min. With Vaclav Helsus, Klara Issova “Accessible, entertaining…an amiably goofy yarn.” —Leslie Felperin, Variety “Svankmajer’s most poignant and fully-formed feature to date…just dreamy.” —David Jenkins, Time Out London Dreams are at the core of this Czech master’s latest work, a film one critic labeled an “ingenious psychoanalytical comedy.” Evzen, a middle-aged office worker, dreams of the same exotic young woman dressed in red every night, a secret he keeps from his wife. Whimsy competes with Svankmajer’s droll trademark grotesquerie as the love-smitten suitor alternates assignations with his dream lover with appointments on the analyst’s couch, where he agonizes under animated portraits of Freud and Jung. In Czech with English subtitles. 35mm. (BS)
