A very important story and beautiful production telling it. Recommended.

During the Cold War, Czechoslovakia had a government a tad independent of the USSR. The film deals with the threat of a complete USSR takeover of Czechoslovakia. OK, now I got an item off my bucket list – the one that says I needed to write the Czech word twice in a film comment. This is a great 4 hour mini-series that aired on the European HBO network (what percent of Americans even know such a channel exists?) What happened in 1969 to lawyers, students, citizens when they took the governments of Czech and USSR to court?

It was a good movie but I missed a good part of the visuals while reading the sub titles. Not being a foreign film purist I wish they would dub some of these films or at least give you the option.
