...Stephen Sachs - working from his eponymous play - slowly but surely manages to infuse the proceedings with a surprisingly even-handed sensibility.
There's not a more acerbic, scathing or compelling critique of the Communist regime.
Audience Reviews for The Ear (Ucho)
Great Czechoslovakian film from the 70s in the communist era, where comrades, even apart of the party, are sincerely paranoid. In this case, we see Ludvik and Anna seeing suspicious actions of other party members, weird things and thinking the 'Ear' is always listening in their houses, and that nowhere in their own home is safe to talk in private. It's definitely an interesting movie with some pretty cool occurrences. It's also pretty entertaining to watch as it is pretty suspenseful, and yet an entreating psychological thriller. It is really interesting to see how being apart of the harsh communist party was - or so they say, that people become so seemingly paranoid. It was pretty cool to connect the flashbacks of Ludvik to then think that he'll be next, to disappear suddenly. I quite enjoyed it.
