Film and Beer: Ruffiano and Sweeteeth

Date: 20 October 2015 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM, Venue: Bistro Bohem

Based on the stories of Karel Čapek, director  Karel Smyczek's musical fairy-tale reveals how pacific intellectual Ruffiano, a son of a notorious thief, lives his life after promising to carry on the family business to his father.

In this tale filled with merry songs and wit, a notorious thief sends his only son Ruffiano to be educated by monks. On his deathbed, he requests that Ruffiano carry on the family “trade” of looting. However, Ruffiano’s pure heart finds no pleasure in such pursuits. He meets a woodsman and a band of foreigners that lead him down a path to the beautiful Sultan’s daughter, Sweeteeth, who has a mysterious illness. Can he cure her before it's too late? The film is based on the stories of Karel Čapek. Sip a delicious brew at Bistro Bohem while watching this beloved tale. (1997, 106 min., Czech with English subtitles)
