This is only a brief overview of the history of Czech cinema. I have chosen the most important Czech actors and most interesting movies.


Remember that I am no film specialist and the choice is influenced by my own taste and also by the limited space on this page.  Therefore, don't expect any sophisticated analyses. I mostly concentrate on popular movies for wide audience, not on little known movies made for few film critics. If you are interested in this topic, I can recommed a specialized page CZECH CINEMA. However, I do hope that no important movie or actor is missing. 


In the end, I apologize for possible errors in my English and inaccurate English translations of some movies. Often it is not easy to find adequate words for their metaphoric names.
