    TEACHER, THE (2016)

    [UČITEĽKA]
    In this sharp and funny takedown of totalitarianism, the arrival of a new teacher at a Bratislava school in 1983 sparks a moral dilemma. As the highest-ranking Communist official in town, Mrs. Drazděchová (Zuzana Mauréry) has power, and she is unafraid to wield it, blackmailing her students and their parents to cater to her every whim, from picking up groceries to smuggling cakes into Siberia. But the tide begins to turn when a few brave parents decide to speak up. A universal parable and a taut morality tale grappling with a recent Communist past, this is a smart and acerbic satire with heart. Best Actress (Zuzana Mauréry), 2016 Karlovy Vary Film Festival; Official Selection, 2016 Busan, Tokyo, Warsaw and Dubai film festivals. DIR Jan Hřebejk; SCR Petr Jarchovský; PROD Tibor Búza, Zuzana Mistríková, Ľubica Orechovská. Slovakia/Czech Republic, 2016, color, 102 min, DCP. In Slovak with English subtitles. NOT RATED
