Workers of Ken Loach
Pata, Václav ; MRAVCOVÁ, Marie (advisor) ; VAJCHR, Marek (referee)
Ken Loach have been creating films of social realism for more than fifty yers. He walked a long way to I, Daniel Blake (2016) since Cathy Come Home (1966). I'm focused on a topic of labourers/workers in Loach's films in my thesis. Labourer/Worker is defined as an adult person, which makes his living with his own hand or he/she were if the system would allow it. The chosen theme and selection of films, which I'm focused on, caused that I'm giving the same space both political and social sides of the class inequality. Films, I tried to analyse from the given point of view are Riff-Raff (1991), The Navigators (2001) and I, Daniel Blake (2016). Also, I briefly take a look at Days of Hope (1975) and the award-winning film Kes (1969).
Tennessee Williams: Night of the Iguana
Semler, David ; MRAVCOVÁ, Marie (advisor) ; VAJCHR, Marek (referee)
The Bachelor's Thesis compares the short story and the play, both entitled Night of the Iguana and both written by Tennessee Williams. The Thesis also deals with the adaptation of the play to the form of a film production directed by American director John Huston. Although both the characters and the events of the short story differ from the play, both literal works share the themes and motives they deal with: loneliness, anxiety, non-freedom, contrast between chastity and obscenity, loss of faith in God, the desire for unity with another person and the belief in the power of spiritual contact between two people. The film Night of the Iguana is a successful adaptation, in which most of the changes to the original play are only formal. The film is more epic, the unity of time, place and space is broken, dialogues are truncated, while the characters are more profound. There is less of the symbolic and the philosophical questions in the movie, as well as there is not so much of Williams’s absurd sense of humour and the overall approach of the director is more realistic. However, the main theme, the story and the characters stay true to the original Williams’s play.
Horizons of Saint Clara
Součková, Štěpánka ; DUFEK, Jiří (advisor) ; MRAVCOVÁ, Marie (referee)
This bachelor thesis is a comparative study of the film The Ideas of Saint Clara (1980, West Germany, directed by Vojtěch Jasný, written by Pavel Kohout and Jelena Mašínová), the novel The Ideas of Saint Clara (1980, West Germany, written by Pavel Kohout) and the film adaptation of the novel Saint Clara (1996, Israel, directed by Ari Folman and Ori Sivan). The study is focused on changes of content and style in three different cases with respect to the historical context and authors' personalities. The aim of this bachelor thesis is to point out neglected titles of major Czech authors, which were created in exile during the so called normalization period and which inspired Israeli filmmakers to produce the original, internationally known and award-winning adaptation.

Theme of Guilt and Punishment in Stories and Dramatic of František Langr in Domestic and Global Context
Krsková, Kateřina ; Mravcová, Marie (advisor) ; Holý, Jiří (referee)
The thesis describes the evolution and variances in the motive of crime and punishment throughout prosaic and dramatic works of František Langer. After an introductory reflection on crime and punishment the thesis deals with an analysis of Doskojevskij's novel "Crime and Punishment" which had a large impact on Langer's conception of these terms. It also outlines an image of crime and punishment in Czech literature at the turn of the 19th and 20th century, which might have influenced Langer. The first part also tries to clarify how these motives were evolved in author's incipient work. It follows up prose collections "Gold Venus" and "Dreamers and Murderers". The second part is focused on the refined and often very complicated form of crime and punishment in Langer's dramas "Saint Wenceslas", "Periphery", "Camel through Eye of a Needle", "Reversal of Ferdyš Pištora", "Angels among us" and "Seventy-two" and tries to grasp and characterize it.
