Panaji, (IANS), Director Jan Bryzina describes his first fiction feature film, Erhart, as a romantic film set against the backdrop of the country’s political situation.

The Czech Republic film made its Asian premiere at the ongoing 53rd International Film Festival of India (IFFI) in Goa.

According to him, the film tells the story of a 23-year-old man who returns to his hometown to care for his mother and discovers dangerous truths about his family’s past and the legacy of the local community.

Talking about the history of his country, Jan Brezina said on Tuesday that the Czech Republic had changed from a socialist regime to a capitalist regime 30 years ago.

After that everything turned upside down, he said. All state-owned property was privatized. All this happened thirty years ago. But it still has some influence today. So, I thought about how today’s young generation of the Czech Republic sees it.

Producer Marek Novak said the film would be released in the Czech Republic in spring or winter next year.

Talking about the film market of his country, he said that it is not right to compare the film market of India and Czech Republic.

Marek Nowak said, we have a population of only 10 million (1 crore) and we make about 30-35 fiction feature films a year.

Marek also pointed out that, after the pandemic, there has been a huge backlog of films waiting to be released in his country, as there are five to six premieres every week.
