She Grazed Horses on Concrete







After the highly repressive first decade and a half, the communist authorities never returned to the same level of rejection of eroticism in film. By contrast, a disinclination to show images of interpersonal violence remained characteristic of all of Central European filmmaking in much of the second half of the 20th century, one of the few mandates that was actually absorbed by filmic culture and lingered on after the collapse of communism. Although Štefan's (Ľubomír Paulovič) and Jožko's (Jozef Friňák) bootless attempt to revenge Pavlína (Veronika Jeníková) by beating up Private Jirka (Ivan Klečka) is filmed as a comic scene, the melee, like Jirka's earlier fistfight with the village boys, is not choreographed on the screen.
