Film Diary: Lásky jedné plavovlásky, 1965, directed by Milos Forman
I've always known about Milos Forman from his more Hollywood fare, but had never seen any of his earlier Czech work. I really loved this film for its beautiful shots, wonderful simplicity, and resilient humanity. His protagonist Andula was played by his former sister-in-law Hana Brejchová in her first film and he captures her unconventional beauty in such artful ways.
It's not an epic movie, but it captures a small-town girl's story with situations that are sadly comical and ultimately timeless.
