is a Czech-Slovak co-production, screened in competition at this year's Karlovy Vary International Film Festival. The story is set in Czechoslovakia in the early 1980s and follows the drama taking place at an elementary school, as a seemingly empathetic and amiable teacher, Mrs Drazděchová, is accused of using her students to manipulate their parents to provide her with handyman assistance, material comforts, and even a love affair. We met up with Hřebejk at the festival to talk about the film.
