Reviews of the The Shadow of the Ferns

A beautiful film, another gem from Frantisek Vlacil, Even though entire oeuvre of this great director is somehow neglected and undervalued, at least his "medieval trilogy" and Adelheid get some attention, while the The Shadow of the Ferns is almost forgotten. It's a pity as it is a marvelous,moody piece of work, and one of my personal favorites from the 80-ies.

Someone called it a story of Hansel and Hansel - as the film – despite a quite straightforward story does have a fairy tale, almost a mystical, quality though one can also see it as Clyde and Clyde…two misfits on a crime spree chased by the authorities… The story actually is open to many interpretations and readings – social injustice and rebellion, fairy tale about crime and punishment, a love story of sorts…

Just like in Valley of the Bees by the same director - here too there is a quite strong homo-erotic bond between the male leads but nothing overt. The roles are distributed quite clearly between the two – one (Ruda) is aggressive and domineering, more selfish, while the other (Vaclav) is softer, kinder, more considerate, dependent a follower, Actual crimes are committed by Ruda, Vaclav just always tags along Ruda is also more pained, more disappointed with his miserable existence. Vaclav is capable to see and appreciate the beauty around, while Ruda, who is himself very beautiful cannot see the value of it, or rather is pained to accept that there is nothing to all this beauty than ordinary existence with no prospects of change and improvement. Vaclav praises the landscape with flowers and butterflies while Ruda can see only dirt and misery, his aggressive reactions to nature, to carefree party goers, to the couple in love all betray anger , frustration and fear .. Cinematography is superb and the way the film is gradually getting darker and darker at the end is unforgettable, to me it also somehow brings in the memories of the Picnic at the Hanging Rock.


Can't avoid to mention the Martyrdom pose of Ruda in the end – evoking Christ or St.Sebastian ridden with bullets instead of arrows).
