Mixing vivid realism with radical surrealism and humor, films such as the ones compiled in this collection representing the 1960s Czech New Wave often proved groundbreaking. First, Jan Nemec's banned satire on conformity and persecution, "A Report on the Party and Guests" (1966), follows a group of picnickers set upon by a pack of bullies, only to be delivered to saviors that are even worse. Searing look at abusive authority stars Ivan Vyskocil, Jan Klusák. Then, "Return of the Prodigal Son" (1967) follows the psychological war one man wages with himself after his failed suicide attempt. This intense and politically charged drama from director Evald Schorm stars Jana Brejchová, Nina Divísková. Four-disc set also includes "Pearls of the Deep," "Daisies," "Capricious Summer," and "The Joke." 8 1/2 hrs. total. Soundtrack: Czech PCM mono; Subtitles: English. In Czech with English subtitles.
