In memoriam Juraj Herz (04.09.1934 — 08.04.2018)
en The Slovak-born director Juraj Herz had a career in film and television that spans more than 35 years, working mainly in Prague but also in Slovakia, Germany and France. Although he first came to prominence in the 1960s, his work stands apart from that of other Czech and Slovak New Wave directors, and Herz has been far more willing to work in—or, perhaps, it is better to say around—set genres. In 1969, Herz went down in film history with the compelling “The Cremator”, a haunting and achingly astute denunciation of the communist regime that took hold of the nation after the Prague Spring and burned the complacent hypocrisy of the societal elite to a crisp. Wit...h “The Cremator” banned upon release but later acclaimed as one of the major highlights in the canon of the Czech New Wave, Herz turned to fairy tales and literary adaptations set in a bygone age to skirt censorship and find a new outlet for the grotesque and darkly romantic material he was attracted to, often featuring deranged protagonists with intentions of evil while incorporating style elements of the avant-garde. Offscreen
fr Plongeant au cœur de la monstruosité ordinaire, Juraj Herz signe une œuvre atypique et audacieuse qui demeure l’un des grands classiques du cinéma d’avant-garde des années 60. Tout bonnement jubilatoire! AVoir ALire
nl Psychologische horrorcomedy én donkere allegorie die probeert door te dringen tot de wortels van de nazimentaliteit. Een deftige burger, die leeft voor zijn gezin en zijn werk in een crematorium, vindt dat hij zijn medemens niet genoeg helpt in het verzachten van zijn lijden. Hij zoekt mensen die hij kan verlossen van hun aardse beslommeringen… Als de nazi’s zijn binnengevallen kan hij zijn werk ongestoord verderzetten, want zijn ideeën vallen samen met die van de bezetter….
