Communism brings change—and disillusionment—to a small Czech village in this subversive micro-epic. Set between 1945 and 1958, All My Compatriots follows varied residents of a Moravian farming community as they are coerced into collectivization, a process that pits neighbor against neighbor, those who join the party against those who resist. Krumbachová’s attractive costume design offers an ironic visual counterpoint to the narrative. Between the sun-dappled imagery and a feeling for small-town social rituals—from church services to boozy bacchanals—Vojtěch Jasný (who won Best Director at Cannes for this film) casts a jaundiced eye on the corrupt, anti-democratic soul of the Communist takeover.
