Classic Film: Christian

Date: 16 February 2016 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM, Venue: Bistro Bohem

Czech actor Oldrich Nový plays the mysterious Mr. Kristian in Martin Frič’s romantic comedy of the same name.  The elusive Mr. Kristian stops by the posh Orient Club once a month, tipping waiters handsomely and charming beautiful women with a dance and a song. He is called an Ambassador, a Count, a Rector, but who truly is this man? One evening while at the club, he spots the gorgeous Zuzana Rendlová (Adina Mandlová). Overhearing a conversation with her fiancé Fred, Mr. Kristian decides to bring a bit of spice to her life. When she turns on the heat, he may find himself in boiling water. Will Zuzana discover the man who brings a bit of fantasy to her every day life?

Directed by Martin Frič, 1939, 95 minutes, Czech with English subtitles
