Storyline

Jarda Lukás (Jan Kacer), a worker from a big machine-tool plant, enjoyed a rather decent career after the Communist putsch in February 1948. As one of the pioneers of the youth-movement of stakhanovites, he skilfully engaged himself in the political work with young people, and thus quickly climbed up. When Stalin's cult of personality was revealed and rejected, however, many things changed and Jarda is unable to cope flexibly with such changes. He keeps working along the old directives and cannot understand that his political work for which he used to be praised once is now just a reason for mockery. Written by NFA.cz

A moving and poetic film of social and historical importance.
16 December 2003 | by rockpoolSee all my reviews

"Everyday Courage" or "Courage for Every Day" is a beautifully made fllm of great poetic restraint about a young man living in Prague before the collapse of communism. It is best described as belonging to the school of realism which marked the Czech films of the sixties, and its director, Evald Schorm, was noted for his refusal to compromise the subject matter or style of his films with the regime which controlled the film studios. An admirer of the films of the British director Lindsay Anderson, "Everyday Courage" has similarities with"This Sporting Life", its hero striving to escape the repressive forces of a society against which he rebels, but which ultimately demoralizes him and undermines his personal relationships. The winner of the International Film Festival in 1965 it has been notably neglected, and was one of the most moving and lyrical films to emerge from the Czech school. One can only hope that a distributor makes it widely available.
