If only Holland chose a different actress to play the role of Dagmar Buresova, the movie would be flawless.

Choosing Slovak sex symbol to the play the lead role was unwise, as actress’s visuals steal attention from intended features that Dagmar Buresova’s character should have displayed to win the hearts of the viewers. Moreover, all the deals, made between Buresova and key political (male) figures, looked like products of former’s attractiveness while they were clearly products of her professionalism. The way the actress presented Buresova’s character was inappropriate, starting from aggressive make up to tight outfit and heels. When female traits are accentuated like that, the character turns into a sexual object and her other qualifications no longer capture viewer’s attention. Furthermore, it all diminished the role of Czech nationalism in the climate of Soviet domination. The choice of cast is critically important if director wants to convey a certain message. The message most viewers probably received this time was that Dagmar Buresova, another hero of Palach’s case, was very sexy lady. Expand
