WALKING TOO FAST
Radim Spacek in person!
- WALKING TOO FAST
- 2009, Radim Spacek, Czech Republic/Slovakia, 146 min.
- With Ondrej Maly, Kristína Farkasova
The chill of the Cold War has icy fingers on the emotions of every character in this gripping and convoluted drama that is part low-key political thriller, part tale of unshakeable erotic obsession. Antonin (Maly), a dour little man who works for the secret police, comes to envy the life of his longtime quarry, a married writer. The writer’s saucy red-haired mistress, a factory worker, is the prize the bitter, alienated agent feels that life owes him, and the state has put the tools of appropriation within his grasp. Winner of five Czech Lion Awards, including Best Director, Best Screenplay, and Best Actor. In Czech with English subtitles. 35mm. (BS)
Director Radim Spacek will be present for audience discussion on Saturday.
