The Stories about the Youth of Charles IV
19 May 2007 | by theatrum-1See all my reviews

Czech movies from the years 1968 and 1969 have a special flavor. In the August 1968 the armies of Warsaw Pact occupied Czechoslovakia and many of art works (included the area of film) from this time were endowed with the strength of national consciousness. This movie is a good example. It's a cheerful narration about the young years of Charles IV, future Roman emperor. It's full of funny stories and burlesque portraits of European historical persons. But there are also many references to great era of Bohemian Independence and Glory because young master wants to elevate Bohemia, its law and morality. The performances are very good and the movie has mighty atmosphere augmented by perfect music and convincing stylization.
