Andrea Sedláčková / Czech Republic, Slovakia, Germany / 2014 / 100 min / Czech

A sports drama addressing the issue of the doping scheme ran by the Czech Republic’s communist regime.

Czechoslovakia, the gray 1980s. Teenage Anna is a top sprinter and her trainer thinks she can go all the way to the Olympics. Her mother is also pinning her hopes on Anna’s success, seeing it as an opportunity for her daughter to live in the free world beyond the Iron Curtain. This vision is so strong that she willingly supports the doping programme the communist regime is testing on her daughter – although her health will clearly suffer.

»It´s not only a film about doping. It is about freedom, ethics, lines that mustn’t be crossed, about a mother-daughter relationship, about the communist society.« (Andrea Sedláčková)

The film—referred to by its director as a “comedy with no clowns, a tragedy without the antagonists”—is a wonderfully unpredictable family-themed tragicomedy about the conflicts that inevitably arise between the haves and the have-nots. A recipient of the Golden Palm at the most recent Cannes festival and a critics’ favourite of the year.
