Storyline

The comedy Revival tells the story of four musicians whose rock band SMOKE broke up under uncertain circumstances in 1972 and who, each for their own reasons, decide to attempt a spectacular comeback. The reasons vary - money, longing for lost fame, the desire to help a friend and also fear of powerlessness, illness and death. But whatever their original motivation was, these aging men resume playing together and as they start enjoying the music, their friendship and life onstage and behind the scenes, their plans and ambitions change as well.. And they themselves also ultimately change. And one great secret is finally revealed - why the band actually broke up in 1972. Written by Czech film center
