The attractive widow Eliška moves back with her daughter Anetka to her mysteriously deceased husband’s native village. But something strange is going on and, as the temperature rises, Eliška becomes increasingly jittery. Fear is all-pervading and spectres move freely between dream and reality. The blueprint for the film is an 1853 poem by Karel Jaromir Erben, based on ancient Slavic folklore. Jiří Sádek’s HBO-backed feature debut is both an atmospheric horror film and a psychological drama, deftly toying with the viewer’s senses. Alexander Surkala’s luscious 35mm cinematography is a blazing patchwork of sun-bronzed beauty, transforming the Czech hinterlands into a parched Garden of Eden.
