A Well Paid Walk (2009) 85 min. North American Premiere!
6:50*, 9:40pm *Q&A with Miloš Forman


A WELL PAID WALK (DOBŘE PLACENÁ PROCHÁZKA) (2009) Directed by Miloš Forman. With Jiří Suchý, Dáša Zázvůrková, Petr Stach, Petr Píša,  Tereza Hálová. The young marriage of Vanilla and Uli is fast approaching a break-up. The inevitable is stopped in its tracks by a postman and the delivery of a telegram from a rich aunt from Liverpool announcing her arrival and £1 million inheritance for their child. The problem is, they have no child… A selection that will delight especially Czech audiences with fond memories of the legendary Semafor Theater, A WELL PAID WALK (a.k.a. A WALK WORTHWHILE) is a filmed stage production of a play penned by duo Suchý&Šlitr that celebrated much success in the ripe era of the 1960s in Czechoslovakia. Miloš Forman was then asked to direct (together with Ján Roháč) a TV film version of this comic opéra bouffe, a b&w delight of a movie. Coming a full circle, Forman teamed up with his twin sons Matěj (set designer) and Petr (stage co-director) to direct WALK for the stage of no less than the National Theater in Prague, and then filming this delightfully expanded piece to preserve it for posterity. In the age when the Met beams its opera productions in HD to cinemas worldwide, it is only fitting to see Czech stage directorial debut of the brilliant Czech American film director brought onto a US film screen. North American Premiere!
