JAN HUS (1955)


Starring Zdenek Stepánek, Karel Höger, Vlasta Matulová
Director: Otakar Vávra



Print: color

Runtime: 125 min.

Genre: drama

Language: Czech

Subtitles: English



Biopic on Czechoslovakia's great historical figure and precursor of the Reformation. Somewhat academic in style and not particularly original, but well enacted, with some brilliant performances. An absorbing and historically honest denouncement of the abuses committed by the Roman Catholic Church in the 15th century, which occasioned the Reformation one century later.


 


JAN ZIZKA (1957)


Starring Zdenek Stepánek, Frantisek Horák, Karel Höger
Director: Otakar Vávra



Print: color

Runtime: 105 min.

Genre: drama

Language: Czech

Subtitles: English



1419: The atmosphere in Prague after Hus' death is very tense. Several rebels are prisoned and radical priest Jan Zelivský leads large masses of people to the Old Town's council house occupied by corrupt councillors, where the prisoners are kept. The councillors refuse demands lodged by Zelivský and several people are killed by stones thrown from windows. This act provokes ennoyance and leads to an overt uprising: the gate of the council house is broken and the councillors are thrown out of windows and killed (the so-called first Prague defenestration). When the king hears about this event, he is enormously upset and dies of heart failure. In the night the queen with courtiers leaves the city. The hussite revolution begins and the rebels elect Jan Zizka as their leader.
