Code Name Ruby DVD


A search for the source of mystical knowledge is at the heart of this controversial feature from Czech New Wave director Jan Nemec. The film combines documentary-style footage, archival footage, and fiction into an elliptical narrative in which two young lovers in Prague–an ancient seat of alchemy–follow the trail of the fabled philosopher’s stone. History and future blend as Nemec, through brilliant montage sequences and fanciful leaps of the imagination, posits crucial questions about the legacy of the past and how it influences the individual’s personal freedom and responsibility.
