Another Brdečka masterpiece, this film is based on the Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, which the author used as a parable for the immortality of culture and art. In the context of the occupation of Czechoslovakia the previous year, the work’s underlying message is clear. Visually, the film is inspired by the Pompeii frescos and, from a literary perspective, by Ovid’s Metamorphoses.
