Krasno

Part of the CZECH THAT FILM Festival. Krásno, dir. Ondřej Sokol, 2014, 119min, English subtitles.


This black comedy by Ondřej Sokol, the actor and TV/theatre director, has taken the viewers by surprise. This film is based on real life events. At the start of the film the main protagonists - Adam (played by the director himself) and Michal (Martin Finger who co-wrote the screenplay) return to their rural hometown, Šumperk, for a weekend. Michal is visiting his dying father with whom he does not have a good relationship. Michal blames his father for his mother’s mysterious death. The two men attend a school reunion and end up causing chaos after they get very drunk. The film then moves into a detective story genre when Michal starts to suspect that there is something suspicious about his mother’s death and he starts to investigate his mother in law as a possible suspect.

What the critics said:
‘Although Krásno is undoubtedly a promising debut for Sokol, above all it marks the dawn of original and fresh productions’

 ‘The creators show a penchant for not only black, but also deadpan humour, a rare phenomenon in domestic productions. Internationally renowned Czech actor Karel Roden also delivers a tremendous performance in his supporting role as a caring undertaker.’ -Martin Kudláč –CINEUROPA
