Lacing a vivid family drama with light comedic flourishes, Hrebejk offers a poetic and political rumination on contemporary Czech life that reminds us that the present can never outrun the past. Pavel is an esteemed psychiatrist whose dissident activism during the days of Communist rule is about to be honored with a national award. Most everyone is pleased. But unfortunately the film crew documenting Pavel’s accomplishments includes his erratic, resentful son-in-law, Ludek, who is convinced Pavel’s righteous arrogance conceals a darker truth. When research reveals that Pavel had a sordid past with the Czech secret police, Ludek uncovers a shocking family secret that puts everyone’s identity in question. Inspired in part by The Lives of Others, Hrebejk’s morality tale is this year’s Czech submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar. (100 mins.)

Selected Filmography: Divided We Fall (00), Pupendo (03), Up and Down (04), Beauty in Trouble (06), Shameless (08).

Sponsored by Oregon Live.


Interests: Oscar Submissions, Narrative Feature, Comedy.
