Brothers Glasgow Film Festival 2024


Friday 1 and Saturday 2 March, 2024

Czechia’s entry for this year’s Best International Feature Oscar recounts the gripping true story of the Mašín brother’s anti-Communist resistance and their attempt to flee to the West in 1953.

Official Entry: Czechia – Best International Feature – 96th Academy Awards®

Seven decades after brothers Josef and Ctirad Mašín led an armed resistance to the Communist regime before attempting to flee to the West, their story is grippingly brought to the big screen. Oskar Hes and Jan Nedbal star as the brothers, who take up arms after their mother (Tatiana Dyková) refuses to fall in line with the totalitarian state. As their campaign becomes increasingly violent, a dogged security officer (Stefan Konarske), is put on their trail. Tomas Mašín’s film, which is Czechia’s submission for this year’s Best International Feature Oscar, is a tense and compelling portrait of family and resistance.

Czech with English subtitles.
