Film & Beer: Cosy Dens

September 18, 2018, 7:00 PM

Bistro Bohem will screen the film Cosy Dens (Pelišky) on September 18, 2018, at 7 pm, as part of the ongoing Film and Beer Series. Set during Christmas 1967, two neighboring families stand on opposite sides of the political spectrum. Mr. Šebek is a loyal supporter of the regime, while Mr. Kraus, a decorated World War II resistance fighter and Czech nationalist, is staunchly anti-Soviet. The two men argue incessantly while their wives try to keep the peace. Meanwhile, the Šebek's teenage son becomes infatuated with the Kraus's daughter. She, though, has a crush on a teenager who has long hair, loves the Beatles, and wears American boots. Treat yourself to this classic early film of acclaimed director Jan Hřebejk.
