Excellent overview
19 September 2018 | by michaelobarSee all my reviews

I watched this movie because so many friends, young and old, who live in Prague and Plzen highly recommended it to me. Before watching the movie, the o my thing I knew about Milada was that she was a heroic woman who was outspoken against communism. So, I didn't have much to go on, and I decided to not research her prior to the movie - watching strictly on the high recommendations from my Czech friends.

Without knowing much about her, I can confidently say the movie leaves out so much of Milada's story. However, it would be very difficult to make such a movie without it being at least 8 hours long. That said, I would say that this movie is as much about the era surrounding Milada and the principles on which she stood than it was about her.

The historical subtleties stirs me to do more research about Milada Horakova as well as her husband, Bohuslav Horak.

I do think it would be great if the BBC would do a mini-series as a compliment to this movie.
