| A fine movie
I'm an Indian residing in Prague for 6 years. I was aware of Jan Palach in the very first week of landing in Prague. I took a walking tour of Prague old town square where the tour guide mentioned his story. Then again I was aware of Jan Palach day which happens in January. This is my first Czech movie since they screened with English subtitles. I'm A1 level in Czech language so still not very comfortable otherwise to watch without the help of subtitles. Hence avoided all these years. I must say I thoroughly enjoyed the movie. Even though the overall story was known I was keen to understand what drove him, the context, the background and also his personality. I think the director has done a fantastic job to narrate the story whilst keeping the movie at a good pace, with nice subtle humour, beautiful photography especially the period costumes and cityscape. The lead actor has played the role very well. I'd highly recommend this movie to anyone who would ofcourse want to know of Jan Palach final days and more importantly the Czechoslovakia student movement during the Soviet occupation.
