In his new role, Jiří Bartoška transformed into a doctor who lives two lives. “Historically uninstructed, he thinks it will never be figured out, and of course it will be figured out,” the plot suggests.
Petr Kolečko combines humor with more serious topics. “It’s still a comedy, for sure, but there are also deeper themes, family themes, more emotions. It is a film inspired by reality, “he describes.
Bartoška likes to claim that he is a flat actor and refuses to go to the hills – and he even chooses his roles accordingly. In the main one, he will appear four years after the film Theory of the Tiger, which was directed by Radek Bajgar.
After the role in the film, Havel allegedly did not want to be in front of the camera again, as he is usually not satisfied with the offers. “These are offers for two shooting days. The characters are always written indifferently, there’s nothing to play, so I said I wouldn’t shoot anymore. And suddenly a text message came from Petr Koleček that he wrote the screenplay and if I don’t want to read it, that he would like it, “he says.
So far, the Czech Lion-awarded screenwriter has written the most for director Jan Prušinovský. For example, Czech Television broadcast their successful series The Fourth Star, Dwarf and Most !. His own directorial debut, the sports comedy Over the Fingers, became the third most visited Czech title in cinemas last year.
“I just checked out that when it comes down to it, it’s a variant that I can also direct. Although it hasn’t become a variant since then, which I would resort to with more regularity, “says Kolečko.
And while he is making his second feature film for cinemas, the Chataři series, directed by Radek Bajgar, is being created in the Beroun region based on his screenplay.
