Description: Pictures of the Old World is an unquestioned masterpiece of European documentary cinema, with existential radicalism that offers a contrast to the shallowness of hundreds of other documentary films showing images from the outskirts of civilization. The outskirts here are a Slovakian town in the Tatra Mountains. Though censored for 17 years, Dusan Hanáks poetic visual essay is not a political or even social film.

"4.6. Pysäyttävää elokuvaa. Köyhällistön kurjuus, surkeat ihmiskohtalot ja niitä vastaan armoton taistelu on niin kauniisti dokumentoitu filmille. "
