Description

    

Film: Želary

May 15, 2018 at 7 pm

On May 15, at 7 pm, Bistro Bohem will screen Želary as part of the ongoing Film and Beer Series. In this powerful story about life and love, a nurse named Eliška and her lover Richard are part of a resistance movement in 1940s Czechoslovakia. When they are discovered, Richard emigrates and Eliška takes on a new identity as Hana. A patient whose life she has saved agrees to hide her as his wife in his remote mountain village. Will this modern city girl survive in the conservative and secluded world of traditions and prejudices? The film is based on two works that brought renown to Czech novelist Květa Legátová when she was in her eighties - Želary (2001) and Jozova Hanule(2001). (Dir. Ondřej Trojan, 2003, 142 min.) 

The film received the Czech Republic's distinguished Czech Lion Award for Best Actress and Best Sound.  Actress Ana Geislerová won the 2005 Bangkok International Film Festival Golden Kinnaree Award for Best Actress for her role in the film.
