Directed by Agnieszka Holland
Acclaimed director Agnieszka Holland (Europa, Europa) returns to a pivotal time in modern Czech history: the shocking act of a student of the Charles University's Faculty of Arts, who in protest of the Soviet occupation, set himself on fire in Prague's Wenceslas Square on the 16th of January 1969, and died four days later.
"GRIPPING, crisply acted. A tight and suspenseful ethical thriller."
- A.O. Scott, NY TIMES
"Full of humor, tragedy, political thoughtfulness and sharply observed details." -Andrew O'Hehir, SALON
"Holland (is) in masterful form...long on narrative power, emotional conviction and moral responsibility." - Stuart Klawans, The Nation
"A deluxe multi-character drama that blends real history with semi-fictionalized spy thriller and soap opera elements. We could almost be watching an Iron Curtain version of Mad Men." - Stephen Dalton, The Hollywood Reporter
