Film & Beer Series: Cosy Dens

Date: 18 September 2018 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM, Venue: Bistro Bohem

Set during Christmas 1967, "Cosy Dens" (Pelíšky) centers on two neighboring families who stand on opposite sides of the political spectrum, while their children find love and dream of life in the West. 

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 constantly argue and their wives try to keep the peace. Meanwhile, the Šebek's teenage son Michal becomes infatuated with the Kraus's daughter Jindřiška. She, though, has a crush on Elian, a teenager who has long hair, loves the Beatles, and wears American boots. In the end, each member of both families must live out his own story in his own "cozy den" until the Soviet invasion of August 1968 in Czechoslovakia disrupts their world. (Director: Jan Hřebejk, 1999, 116 min., Czech with English subtitles)
