Old-Timers + Q&A

November 9 @ 8:10 pm - 9:35 pm

with actor Jiri Schmitzer and directors Martin Dusek and Ondrej Provaznik.

Vlasta and Tonda, WWII veterans and ex political prisoners, now elderly and infirm, have one last mission – to find and kill the communist prosecutor who once jailed them and escaped justice. Gearing up for the job with an old pistol and a rusty camper-van, the would-be assassins set off on a cross-country vengeance trip accompanied by Tonda´s beloved dogs.

Deploying a grumpy old man act, their age and Vlasta´s wheelchair to manipulate the authorities and their caring families, they try to right old wrongs. As Vlasta says: “You can’t piss all over the truth”. Full of oddball humour and empathy for the unlikely heroes fighting for justice, this bitter comedy with excellent performances successfully combines a road movie with a revenge thriller.

Martin Dusek, Ondrej Provaznik, Czech Republic/Slovakia 2019, English subtitles
