The Teacher

JAN HREBEJK
Slovak Republic, Czech Republic, 2016
103 minutes, Color
Official website

A new film from Jan Hrebejk, the director of the 2013 FFDC favorite 4Some (as well as the Oscar®-nominated 2000 drama Divided We Fall), The Teacher showcases veteran Zuzana Maurery as a ruthless teacher who uses her students to manipulate their parents in the waning days of communism. At a middle school in the Slovak capital Bratislava, a tense meeting of outraged but suspicious parents is intercut with Comrade Drazdechova's crafty, amoral strategies to make her life easier in a repressive society—no matter the human toll on adults or their children. Kind of a cross between 12 Angry Men and a more malevolent Monsieur Lazhar (FFDC 2012 Audience Award winner), The Teacher finds Hrebejk and his long-time screenwriting partner, Petr Jarkovsky, once again demonstrating that they're among the most prolific, perceptive, and best filmmaking teams working anywhere today.—Eddie Cockrell

In Slovak with English subtitles
