A world away from the glitter of Cannes, the Karlovy Vary festival is still one of Europe's most fascinating film festivals. Being at the crossroads of Europe, one of the themes of the festival, and usually its strongest section, is East of the West. With a number of interesting recent Russian, Polish, Romanian, Bulgarian and Hungarian films, it is the place to catch up on the best of Eastern European cinema. Ronald Bergan takes a look at this year's fest in the Czech Republic.
