The Noonday Witch

When Eliška decides to start again, she returns back to her husband’s birth village along with her young daughter. The village environment as well as the neighbours seem nice enough at first sight. New beginnings tend to have a dark side too, however. While this debut feature film by a 21 year old author Jiří Sládek clearly references the poetics of Czech horror stories, it is definitely not just a modern adaptation of Erben’s classic epic poem.
