O braku utopii. Przestrzeń i bohaterowie w filmie Opowieści o zwyczajnym szaleństwie Petra Zelenki
An article explores possibility of applying Michel Foulcaut’s heterotopies and Marc Augé’s non-places discourses to the movie Tales of Ordinary Madness (Příběhy obyčejného šílenství, 2005) by probably most acclaimed contamporary Czech director Petr Zelenka. This text bears the assumption that space (in this particular case mise-en-scène) can visualise some contemporary social and psychological issues: it can reflect or underline conflicts and problems that characters are dealing with. As author suggests, in this particlular movie, the way the film space is designed and its dramatical role has a great influence on how Peter, movie‘s main character, is being perceived. What‘s probably the most interesting, film hero settled in space that can be described as supermodernity, seems to have a lot in common with tradi ional „little Czech man“ personality model.
