a very depressing movie.
12 January 2019 | by sotrabpetr14See all my reviews

As one of the few films, this one also perfectly described the history of the Czech Republic. It had to be terrible to grow up at the time of the invasion of Warsaw Pact troops into Czechoslovakia, and I can hardly imagine this situation. That's why I admire Jan Palach and never forget, what he did. No one will ever forget, what he did for us.
