Into another history of European Cinema
Ciclos y Retrospectivas


Karel Kachyňa | Czechoslovakia | 1970 | 91 min.
O.V. in Czech subtitled in English and Spanish

Banned in 1970 by the Czechoslovak government, then under the yoke of the USSR, The Ear was only released after the fall of the Iron Curtain in 1989, and was part of the Official Selection at Cannes in 1990 as an unusual act of historical reparation. In a second act of reparation, the Czech National Film Archive carried out this 4K restoration of this essential work of the Czech New Wave: the story of the couple Ludvík, a communist officer, and his alcoholic wife Anna, who are led by a series of strange events (keys missing, phone lines cut, colleagues fired) to believe that they are being watched by the political party, and that Ludvik's head is about to fall off.
