Je Treba Zabit Sekala Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

[[Performer~P192150~Vladimir Michalek~vladimírmichálek]] directed this Czech-Polish-Slovak-French WWII period drama about a small Czech village where farmers are threatened by bitter opportunist Sekal ([[Performer~P42470~Boguslaw Linda~boguslawlinda]]) and his companion, dwarf Zaprdek ([[Performer~P241620~Lodovit Cittel~lodovitcittel]]). Sekal, who yearns for the respectability of his married half-brother ([[Performer~P241622~Martin Sitta~martinsitta]]), is held in contempt by his father ([[Performer~P241621~Jiri Holy~jiriholy]]). One day, Sekal goes too far, demanding the fields of a neighbor, the mayor's daughter as a bride, and a night with his half-brother's wife. The farmers choose local blacksmith Jura Baran ([[Performer~P43577~Olaf Lubaszenko~olaflubaszenko]]) to execute Sekal. Complicating matters, Baran has become close to the village priest -- and the parish housekeeper is Sekal's mother. Shown at the 1998 Karlovy Vary Film Festival. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi
