Ice Mother + Q&A with actor Pavel Nový

Hana carries the groceries, looks after her grandchildren and cooks dinners for her self-centred sons. Never thinking about herself she carries on until she meets light-hearted Broňa, an ice swimmer, who lives in a camper van with his best friend Adele, a hen. Absorbed into Broňa's swimming team, Hana gradually overcomes her fear of both life and icy water shocking her family and proving that it is never too late to change. Full of loveable characters, this heart-warming tragicomedy was nominated for both the European and the Academy Film Awards.

Pavel Nový
Pavel Nový is a Czech actor and presenter. He was born in 1948 in Pilsen. In 1989 following engagements in theatres such as the Regional Theatre in Příbram and the Vítězslav Nezval Theatre, Karlovy Vary, Nový became a member of Studio Ypsilon in Prague.
Pavel Nový had his first big break in front of the camera as a 13-year-old (Chicken on Travels, 1962) but he became known mainly as the sound engineer Pepa in Marie Poledňáková’s comedy I Enjoy the World with You (1983).
During his career he has performed dozens of film roles. A remarkable element of his filmography in recent years is his work with the director Jan Švankmajer on the films Greedy Guts and Conspirators of Pleasure.
His film roles  have included a variety of genres; he has starred in comedies, dramas and crime stories. In the 1990s, he also emerged as a TV presenter of fun sport-themed programmes.
