The Painted Bird

Václav Marhoul / Czech Republic, Slovak Republic, Ukraine, Poland 2019 / 169 min. / 15 years / DCP
Many years in the making, the adaptation of the controversial novel by Jerzy Kosiński follows up on Czechoslovakian war and historical dramas from the 60s. Similarly to those, the journey of a Jewish boy through countryside ravaged by horrors of the Second World War intertwines into itself both rawness and beauty.
