More thoughts on ‘Prisoner of the Causceses’

The camera work a lot of the time reminded me of Burnt by the Sun ( the wide angle nature shot, slow panning etc). It was also relativity interesting to see some aspects of Czech culture. As I said before, I found the film to be visually stunning, but lacking story wise. I didn’t hate the movie, to be honest it would be a lot easier to write about the film if I despised it, I am just completely indifferent to everything about this movie and I’m sorry. The characters are sympathetic enough to be sure, but the only one I really liked was the mother; solely because she delivered a beat-down on soldier half her age armed only with a clutch.
All in all, I don’t think that this was a very special film (to me at least)
