Film: Those Wonderful Years that Sucked

November 20, 2018, 7:00 PM

Bistro Bohem will screen the smash hit Those Wonderful Years that Sucked (Bájecná léta pod psa) on November 20, 2018, at 7 pm. The dark comedy, adapted from a novel by Michal Viewegh, chronicles the life of a Czech family from the 1960s to just after the Velvet Revolution. At the forefront are Milena, a lawyer who acts on stage in her spare time, her husband Aleš, an aimless government worker, and their son Kvido, a little genius. The lives of Aleš and Milena change dramatically following the Soviet invasion of Prague in 1968. While at first the film’s heroes are often in risky or dangerous situations, the end of the story, set in the period after the Velvet Revolution, is conciliatory, amiable and ironic. Unwind at the Bistro with this classic 90s film. 

Directed by Petr Nikolaev, 1997, 109 min., Czech with English subtitles
