CaSFFA’s 2015 Opening Night film is a terrific, blackly comic social drama plucked from the Main Competition at the 50th Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, after already enjoying considerable critical and commercial success in Czech cinemas.
The Snake Brothers are Viper and Cobra (real-life brothers Matěj and Kryštof Hádek, respectively), each a thirty-something 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 a real challenge for Viper, as Cobra is a real loose cannon with a high-maintenance amphetamine problem, even if he is nonetheless his mother’s favourite…
Opening Night: The Snake Brothers plus party in the ACMI Cafe and Bar. Includes cocktail upon arrival in the cinema at 6.30pm, first drink at the party for free, nibbles and live music from Orkeztra Glasso Bashalde!
