Czech Republic/Slovakia. Dir. Jan Hrebejk. 2013, 92 mins. Digital projection. New York premiere. With Ana Geislerova, Stanislav Majer, Jiri Cerny. Tereza and Radim’s sun-dappled country wedding takes a dark turn when an uninvited stranger shows up bearing an ominous gift: a funeral urn full of ashes. From there, the revelations begin to pour forth in this edgy, elegantly constructed drama of long-buried secrets and lies. Czech maestro Jan Hrebejk assembles a powerhouse ensemble cast headed by his frequent leading lady, Ana Geislerova, “one of the best actresses of her generation.” (The Hollywood Reporter)
