Sorry, there are no upcoming session times for Larks on a String at Dendy Canberra
A cinematographic gem that had been banned from screening for 20 years. Winner of the 1990 Berlin International Film Festival.
A comedy-drama based on the novel by the acclaimed author Bohumil Hrabal is set in the repressive 1950s, a period when many Czechoslovaks were politically persecuted by the Communist dictatorship.
The plot revolves around various outcasts – intellectuals, religious people and other dissidents that opposed the regime. They are all forced to work in a junkyard in order to be ‘re-educated’. Included in this group of odd characters are female prisoners who are forced to work in the yard as part of their one-year sentence for trying to defect from the country.
However miserable the place is, the characters try to maintain their dignity and never give up on love and life.
