Small Town

Director: Jan Kraus

Year: 2003

Plot: The film titled Small Town is a mosaic of stories and episodes from a small Czech town during the period of change between the totalitarian era and the post-communist capitalism that followed. A palette of small-time heroes who battle with the change of the social system and their personal position therein, sometimes more and sometimes less successfully. The major and minor events are based on the film director's own experiences, changed or supplemented by different degrees of poetic license. People try to go into business, to achieve restitution of property confiscated long ago by the communists, to steal and cheat in the new style, but with the old habits still rife.—Ceskatelevize.cz
