BIRDIES, ORPHANS AND FOOLS
(in Slovak with English subtitles, 1968, 78 mins.)
directed by Juraj Jakubisko

This mosaic-like parable is set in undefined space and time, still its crazy world without ideals filled with violence, cynicism and hopelessness clearly resembles the social atmosphere in Czechoslovakia after August 1968. Three strange loners survive only thanks to their "foolishness" - a life based on play and philosophy of j...oy. But the tragic ending of their coexistence is an inevtiable outcome of reality that only offers two responsibilities: insanity or death.
