Accumulator 1

  • Czech Republic
Audio Tracks 

In the Czech environment, the 1990s were more likely to favour fantasy themes in literature than elsewhere. It’s no surprise then that Jan Svěrák’s science fiction movie was a rather isolated event in post-revolution cinema, and thus the picture had all the more impact on genre-starved audiences of the time. The story of exhausted Olda – who battles a parallel world behind his television screen as it attempts to siphon off his energy – represented the then apex of local special-effects technology, but it is also a stellar parody of popular Hollywood blockbusters. Olda’s unequal fight against the beguiling TV machinery has proven to be one of the most imaginative tales in which people try to escape from a trap that they themselves devised. (KVIFF)
