A Poem about the Missing Taste of Oldtime Youth
Zlatá reneta (Golden Rennet) is one of the best Czech psychological movies about the male aging. It is a movie adaptation of autobiographic prose by Frantisek Hrubin, excellent Bohemian poet. It catches elderly man (Karel Höger plays him perfectly.) who is coming to the village of his youth. He is looking for his old love in the near town. He must spend one night in the village house of his relatives so his idealist world-view is confronted with their everyday concerns. He is returning and the RETURN is a key world of this story. His present is pervaded with memories on all his life, so beholders find progress of his opinions and discern his temper. Some parts of a movie have an impression of bad dream (shots on his alcoholism) and the whole film regards as a movie-poem. The storyline is mostly narrated than acted and the inner language of the main character has a hypnotic charm of bitter remembering.
