Old Believers

Old Believers Lowest new price: $19.99
List price: $29.95
Brand: FACETS VIDEO

Filmmaker Jana Sevcikova spent years in the outlands of Eastern Europe, chronicling the descendants of immigrants and exiles to these remote lands. The results are three revealing documentaries that capture the unique lives and customs of people unknown to most of the world. The award-winning Old Believers (2001) documents a strongly religious community where time seems to stand still, but does it? During the 17th century, Russian immigrants of a minority faith settled in a remote area of Romania’s Danube Delta, allowing them to preserve their original language and beliefs, but yet the people enjoy modern conveniences. Piemule (1984) offers a close look at the descendants of Czech immigrants in Romania, and Jakub (1992) tells the story of Jakub Popovich, a Ruthenian in western Bohemia whose life spanned the tumultuous events of the region from 1947 to 1992. These exceptional documentaries are poetic, intimate portraits that capture both the humanity and mystery of people from another place, another time.

The Perfect Husband

The Perfect Husband Lowest new price: $20.84
Lowest used price: $19.49
List price: $19.98

Based on a story by Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Perfect Husband is a suspenseful hybrid of tense psychological drama and period love triangle. Set in Prague in 1900, this emotionally inhibited roller coaster revolves around three friends who met at a spa seven years ago. Gifted musician Milan (Tim Roth) is an unabashed womanizer who wins over even the most difficult-to-conquer women and whose propensity for seduction has led to 29 duels and counting with their affronted husbands. Wealthy spa manager Franz (Peter Firth) is much harder to read. His always proper, button-down demeanor cloaks a surprisingly tumultuous, fiery inner nature--when a stranger on a train, reminding him that smoking is not allowed, takes his pipe and throws it out the window, he calmly throws her dog out the window, reminding her that animals are not allowed. Franz's wife, Therese (Ana Belén), becomes the third point on the triangle.

The story begins when Franz appears unexpectedly at Milan's home. The action bounces between flashbacks that gradually reveal Milan's feverish affair with Franz's wife and Franz's current psychological manipulations that will reveal whether or not he knew about the affair and who his mysterious travel companion is. An enthralling period drama with an underlying air of mystery and psychological tension, The Perfect Husband is an erudite antidote to too much mindless television. The DVD also includes a scene index. --Tara Chace

Body Without Soul

Body Without Soul Lowest new price: $9.13
Lowest used price: $5.22
List price: $19.95
Brand: Water Bearer Films

From director Wiktor Grodecki (Mandragora) this startling and disturbing feature is a graphic insider's view of the seedy but burgeoning East Europe industry that trades nubile young men. The film introduces us to one of the adults (now jailed) who exploits Prague's youth; the city's police coroner and prolific porn director named Pavel. Told with unflinching honesty, Body Without Soul provides an explicit view of the exploitation, pain , and pitiful existence of young men who, out of necessity, sell their bodies to survive. The camera follows the young men as they walk the streets, work on porno shoots, hustle for money, and talk abut their emotions, bodies, sexual preferences and fear of AIDS, their hopes and demons.

Conspirators of Pleasure

Conspirators of Pleasure Lowest used price: $9.98
List price: $29.95

Selling much of my personal collection; not a dealer. Like all of my used DVDs, I watched it once and put it on a shelf; no scractches on disk. I'd say it looks just like it would with one use. This is a very strange and unusual presentation with many uses of puppets, clay changing shape, and the like. For that reason, an intersting DVD. Because this Czech director does such unusual things, I've leaned toward not sellling his Faust though a lack of space may win out so keep checking if you like the director. This appears to be out of print.
