WILD BEES (Divoke vcely)

Dir. Bohdan Slama, 94 min, 2001

A dark, satirical look inside a Moravian village yields a beehive of trouble. Shy 18-year-old Kaja lives with his grandmother and philosophizing father. Kaja’s main occupation in life is secretly admiring the girl of his dreams: Bozka, a wild-child who runs a general store in the local village. When Kaja’s prodigal brother arrives from Prague for a visit, long stagnant relationships begin to stir. This wide-screen gem excels for its sophisticated camerawork and sensitive editing. Wild Bees is reminiscent of the Czech New Wave from the 1960s that provided beautiful bittersweet films about life in the countryside and village communities. Slama’s second feature SOMETHING LIKE HAPPINESS (Stesti) presented in 2005 at the New York Intl. Film Festival, will be released soon in the US on DVD and in cinemas.
