The early 1980s, Czechoslovakia. The principal of an elementary school calls a special parents meeting. Allegations have been made against a seemingly empathetic, kind, and amiable-looking teacher named Mrs. Drazděchová, claiming that she uses her students to manipulate their parents into providing her with minor handyman assistance, unearned material comforts, and even a love affair.

Jan Hřebejk

 

Jan Hřebejk (b. 1967, Prague) is one of the Czech Republic’s most prolific and versatile film directors. His debut Big Beat (1993) won the very first Czech Lion Awards for Best Picture and Best Direction. Cosy Dens, which competed at KVIFF in 1999, and Pupendo (2003) feature among the biggest hits of post-revolution Czech cinema. Hřebejk was nominated for an Academy Award for the war tragicomedy Divided We Fall (2000), and received another Czech Lion for Best Director.
