Encounters - Berlin International Film Festival
The year is 1980. Michal and Juraj are students at a theological seminary in totalitarian Czechoslovakia during the Cold War era. Fearing the dissolution of their school, the tutors are moulding the students into a shape satisfactory to the ruling Communist Party. Each of the young seminarians must decide if he will give into the temptation and choose the easier way of collaborating with the regime, or if he will subject himself to draconian surveillance by the secret police. A beautiful and brutal drama served with stunning cinematography.
