Pritelkyne z domu smutku 2x DVD
The four-part television film Girlfriends from the House of Sadness is based on the same-named literary work by Eva Kantůrková. Written in the early 1980s, the novel was inspired by Kantůrková's experiences following her arrest for political reasons and subsequent year-long detention in Prague's Ruzyně prison. This place was designed to strip people of their dignity through a systematic approach, yet it also became a site for stories of friendship and solidarity, which made prison life more bearable. Kantůrková’s book, which she termed a novel-truth, achieves remarkable impact, a quality retained in its four-part adaptation. Co-written by Eva Kantůrková and Václav Šašek, directed by Hynek Bočan, and featuring a host of talented Czech actors, the film won the Grand Silver Prize for series and the Grand Gold Prize for Ivana Chýlková's acting performance at the 1994 MTF in Cannes.
