Episode Details

(1979/Czechoslovakia, 125 min., color, drama) Cast: Vladimir Mensik, Lukas Vaculik, Jan Hrusinsky, Tereza Pokorna, Rudolf Hrusinsky. The 1930s in Prague's Zizkov quarter: The Bursiks, a cobbler's family, have moved from the country to the city. The father never recovers from his wife's early death, but their children manage to quickly adapt to big city life. This nostalgic and comic evocation of an era was inexplicably held up by the authorities before it was approved for release.
