The Snake Brothers + Q&A with director Jan Prušinovský and actor Kryštof Hádek
The concept of brotherly love takes a mighty beating in this story of two thirty-something siblings (played by the real-life Hádek brothers) making ends meet in a small industrial town. Grass Snake, unemployed and liking his drink too much, is forever coming to the aid of his junkie brother and thief Cobra until the day he seizes an unexpected opportunity. The brewing crazed standoff between the brothers has tragic consequences in this down-to-earth drama full of rough-cast humour.
