Presented from a brand new 4K restoration that premiered at 2019 Cannes Film Festival, A Blonde in Love is widely regarded as one of the great films of the 60s.
A subtle and beautifully observed social satire which maintains a remarkable balance between despair and hope, this bittersweet romance from Milo Forman, the multiple Oscar-winning director of Black Peter, One Flew Over the Cuckoo s Nest and Amadeus, unfolds as a sweetly seductive film but also provides a wry critique of life under totalitarianism. Forman is able to distil universal truths from the simplest of situations and present them with a sharp yet compassionate eye.
Aided by Miroslav Ond í ek s wonderful camerawork, and with Ivan Passer (director of Intimate Lighting) as assistant and co-scriptwriter, the pleasures to be gained here are immense.
