Operation Silver A / Operace Silver A DVD
This two-part television script by Lucie and Josef Konáš is a powerful and dramatic tale of love, heroism, and frailty set during the Protectorate period in Czechoslovakia. Although it starts almost idyllically in late 1941 with an early New Year's celebration, the story quickly takes a turn as three young men, Bartoš, Potůček, and Valčík, parachute nearby into a snow-covered forest. The arrival of these parachutists from England in Pardubice brings a significant shift in the lives of two beautiful young women, friends and admirers of film stars like Adina Mandlová and Nataša Gollová, and their husbands. The women, Hana and Táňa, along with their spouses and others, become involved in dangerous missions to assist the parachutists, while still pursuing their dreams in the film industry, fascinated by the charm of one of the parachutists, Alfréd Bartoš. As their friendship starts to crack under the pressure, the danger of the group being discovered by the Germans increases, with clues leading them to Valčík, hiding under a false identity. The story, set in a short timeframe, encapsulates a wide range of human character transformations, from minor failings to significant betrayals, alongside remarkable and unexpected acts of courage and sacrifice. Focusing on this era from the perspective of complex and ambiguous relationships, authors created a script that became the basis for a compelling and audience-engaging TV film, enhanced by Jiří Strach's direction and the casting of Tatiana Vilhelmová and Klára Issová in the lead roles, supported by an equally impressive cast including Jiří Dvořák, David Švehlík, Ivan Trojan, Miroslav Táborský, Aleš Háma, Matěj Hádek, Viktor Preiss, and others.
