People (and Trivia) from the Making of Divided We Fall

In addition to the proven team of Jan Hrebejk and Petr Jarchovsky, a number of top creative personalities participated in making the film: JAN MALIR stood behind the camera (Cosy Dens, Ruffiano and Sweeteeth, Big Beat, Tank Battalion, etc.), the art director was MILAN BYCEK (Victims and Murderers, Out of the City, Cosy Dens, The Life and Extraordinary Adventures of Private Ivan Conkin, etc.), and costumes were designed by KATARINA HOLLA (Landscape, Cosy Dens, The Wonderful Years that Sucked, Kolya, etc.). Her costumes impressively evoked the era of the Second World War, and art director Milan Bycek underscored her achievement with his scenery and period props.

The film's music was selected and/or composed by musician and musicologist Ales Brezina, director of the Bohuslav Martinu Foundation Study Center. He and Jan Hrebejk worked together as students of Prague's Film Academy (FAMU) on two film projects: Everything You Always Wanted to Know about Sex but Were Afraid to Experience and the successful Bachelors. He also worked on the music for Petr Zelenka's film The Buttoners.

 

 

For the new film, Brezina composed an original film score, and rounded it off with archive music from Germany. "The most horrible musical kitsch and banal melodies of the period are used in the film, as well as great classical works, gems of German music. For me, Second World War is one of the biggest of paradoxes, with its clash, within one nation, between the highest culture and the cruelest barbarism. This is the element that interests me," adds the musician; he also helped out during shooting by translating German dialogue.
