“A sardonic, richly seriocomic morality play that uses a delicate touch to explore why communism never seems to work out in the long run.”~IndieWire

Aroview: Black comedy set in 1983 Bratislava, where a school teacher takes advantage of Communist traditions, manipulating the parents of her students into doing increasingly outrageous favours. A hilarious satire of political corruption from Oscar-nominated writer/director duo Jan Hrebejk and Petr Jarchovsky (DIVIDED WE FALL).
