Petrolejové lampy (Oil Lamps) (The Kerosene Lamps)
This Czechoslovak film re-creates the latter days of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Set in a small Czech town in the 1890s, in telling detail, the film shows us the deteriorating community and private life of Stepa (Iva Janzurova). Stepa has syphilis, an incurable, terminal disease. The penultimate indignity the disease heaps upon him is madness. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
