Those Few Days...

Yves Ciampi, 1968

Film at Filmový přehled


Born of a collaboration between Czech and French filmmakers, this feature film was severally affected by the dramatic changes in the political situation that occurred before and after the Warsaw Pact invasion of August 1968. The crushing of the Prague Spring political liberation meant Yves Ciampi’s film was barred from distribution to cinemas in Czechoslovakia. The protagonist of Těch několik dnů… (1968) is Frenchwoman Francoise, who experiences a love affair while studying sociology in Prague. Francoise had married shortly before she left for her studies, but she tries to break the bonds with her French partner. The love triangle, however, is affected by the political turmoil of 1968 and emotional alienation… The leading parts in the film – which offers an interesting insight into its contemporary era – are portrayed by Thalie Frugés and Vít Olmer.
