Video Thursdays at the Czech Center New York

Victims and Murderers, dir. Andrea Sedláčková, 2001, 98 min., subtitles

Andrea Sedláčková ’s dark, stylish directorial debut revolves around a tormented psycho-sexual relationship between Mirek, who is introspective and emotionally repressed,a nd Jana, his forthright, sexually charged half-sister.

A relationship that consumed them as adolescents in the 1970s now torments them and leads inexorably to their destruction. This archetypal story is pure Greek tragedy, yet its setting in a small village in the Czech Republic grounds it in a familiarity which makes the downfall of the protagonists particularly harrowing.

Karel Roden gives a remarkable performance as the ensnared, doomed brother, which stands out for its portrayal of repressed rage and vulnerability. His performance earned him a Czech Lion award nomination at the 2001 Czech Film and Television Academy Awards.

Starring Karel Roden, Ivana Chýlková, Monika Hilmerová, and Vladimír Škultéty.
