Synopsis

A gripping portrait of an insane war.

 

A look at the absurdity of war and a piercing account of false ideals, Martin Hollý’s masterpiece with its carefully constructed script gives an excellent portrait of the final years of World War I and the Austro -Hungarian Empire.

The trenches of the Eastern Front provide the backdrop to the drama of Corporal Hoferik. In his devotion to the Habsburg Empire, he fanatically carries out his military orders.

Hoferik, brilliantly played by Vlado Müller is a genuine tragic hero hoping for a different world, but strictly adhering to the codes of duty and obedience which are ultimately his undoing.

The Embassy of the Slovak Republic is the proud sponsor of this screening.
