WFC Slovakia: Obrazy starého sveta

Utterly entrancing.

I’m not sure how much of it is real, though. It seems to present itself as a documentary of sorts, and some of the people (or characters) we see seem rather, uhm, unlikely.

If it’s all real, the film-makers are kinda cruel with their subjects.

I couldn’t believe it when I saw the end titles. This was made in 1972! The director was so ahead if his time.

Pictures of the Old World. Dusan Hanák. 1972. Slovakia.


  • bacon
  • honey
  • calvadot

Crisp up the bacon in a pan. Add the honey and let it bubble a bit. Take off the heat and add calvados. Heat up again, but don’t let it boil. Serve hot in a glass.

I thought this was going to be horrible, but it’s about the best hot alcohol drink I’ve tasted. It’s not very nice after it’s cooled off, though.
