The Snake Brothers (Kobry a Uzovky)

Unclassified 18+

17 Sep

The 2015 Czech and Slovak Film Festival of Australia’s opening night film is a terrific, blackly comic social drama. Plucked from the Main Competition at this year's 50th Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, where Kryštof Hádek won the Best Actor award, the film enjoyed tremendous critical and commercial success in Czech cinemas.

No Longer Available.
  • The Snake Brothers are Viper and Cobra (real-life brothers Matěj and Kryštof Hádek, respectively), both thirty-somethings struggling to get by in a depressed Central Bohemian town. Poor, put-upon Viper means to make the most of an unexpected opportunity to improve his underwhelming lot in life, but this will require somehow keeping his little brother Cobra in check.

    Herein lies the real challenge for Viper: Cobra is a loose cannon with a high-maintenance amphetamine problem, even if he is nonetheless his mother's favourite.

    *Ticket price includes a complimentary drink on arrival and access to the opening night party.
