Highlights of Czech Cinema


It’s 1983 and a new teacher arrives at a school. Soon life turns upside down with rumours of her corrupt behaviour. When a  meeting is called, parents must decide whether they dare to risk  opposing the well-connected teacher or continue to provide favours in return for good grades for their offspring. A beautifully crafted study of the corrosive force of corruption nominated for the European Film Academy Award. Winner of the Best Actress Prize at the Karlovy Vary Film Festival.
