The Films of Jan Nemec

Pearls of the Deep

Perlicky Na Dne
Czechoslovakia | 1966 | Vera Chytilová, Jaromil Jires, Jirí Menzel, Jan Nemec, Evald Schorm

Pearls of the Deep

Five wry, surreal, subversive short stories by celebrated Czech writer Bohumil Hrabal (Closely Watched Trains) are brought to the screen by Jan Nemec and four other filmmaking firebrands in this omnibus film that is almost a manifesto of the Czech New Wave. Nemec’s segment is set in a nursing home, where two old men stay alive by telling each other stories of their illustrious lives. “Compelling time capsules of defiance and love.” –Village Voice.
