KOLYA, the Golden Globe and Academy Award Winner as Best Foreign Language Film of 1996
The Slavic Club presents KOLYA, the Golden Globe and the Academy Award
winner as best foreign language film of 1996 on Thursday, February 7, 2013, at 6 - 8:30
p.m., in Fahy 236.
Kolya, a Czech film set in the 1980's, is about the transforming
relationship between a Russian boy & a rascally Czech bachelor who
is humanized by the responsibility of looking after the abandoned child.
In Soviet Czechoslovakia, middle-aged concert cellist and bachelor
Frantisek Louka (Zdenek Sverak) is strapped for cash, reduced to playing
funerals, when a chance relationship results in his caring for a
5-year-old Russian boy, Kolya, (Andrei Chalimon). Political turmoil is
imminent on the eve of the Velvet Revolution, while Louka's own
emotional upheaval is just as unpredictable in this heartwarming,
Oscar-and-Golden Globe-winning tale.
Everyone is welcome! Free Slavic refreshments will be served!
