PELÍŠKY COSY DENS

The screen adaptation of the novel “Hovno hoří” (in English: Shit Burns) peers in the truest sense behind the facade of Czech society shortly before the invasion of Soviet troops in 1968. The Kraus and Šebek families reside in one of Prague’s stately old villas. The Šebeks are staunch socialists, while father Kraus – a war veteran – is a resolute anti-socialist and a Czech patriot. While the grown-ups are constantly at each other’s throats, the children become friends in the struggle with everyday teenager problems. At least until the airplanes pass over Prague and nothing is as it was before.
