Petr, a musician, and his girlfriend, Stepa, travel from Prague to a provincial town where he is due to give a concert. Whilst there, he reconnects with an old friend, Bambas, who invites the sophisticated couple to stay with his family in their rustic house in the countryside. A beautifully observed drama of the everyday, Intimate Lighting is the only film Ivan Passer made in Czechoslovakia, though he co-wrote most of Miloš Forman’s New Wave work. The Soviet invasion saw him leave for the USA where he continued to direct, the highpoint being the undervalued Cutter’s Way (1981).

71 mins, 1965, Czechoslovakia, Black and White, Digital, Subtitled
