Kawasaki's Rose (Kawasakiho Ruze) Synopsis

This rich and beautifully crafted film highlights one of the great mysteries of current European cinema: why has its Czech director Jan Hrebejk not yet been enshrined within the top tier of contemporary filmmakers? His skill -- and that of his regular screenwriter, Petr Jarkovsky -- is showcased to breathtaking effect in this gripping study of family secrets, betrayal and reconciliation in the post-Communist era. Brilliantly paced and performed, it is one of 2010Â’s must-sees.
