Prize of the Ecumenical Jury, Karlovy Vary 2001

A convincing illustration of the way in which the ideal of freedom undergoes continual transformation in history whithout ever being fully attained. The film shows in a novel way that some wars are inevitable and some revolutions are just, and that the individuals are drawn into the logic of their development, willingly or unwillingly.

The Ecumenical Jury commends the film for showing the spiritual dimension of human existence which lasts, while ideologies come and go.
