Oscar-winning comedy drama from director Jan Sverak, starring Zdenek Sverak. The film traces the relationship between an impoverished cellist and the young boy of whom he takes custody after his mother flees to the West. In Czech with English subtitles.
Brigid Berlin had a comfortable uptown upbringing that her mother hoped would end in her becoming a respectable socialite. Instead, she found cult recognition as an acolyte of Andy Warhol, appearing nude in many photographs and Warhol films. Vincent Fremont and Shelly Dunn Fremont's film shows how, at 60, the outrageous star's life now revolves around her twin obsessions of slimming and housekeeping.
Best known for her appearance in Fellini's La Dolce Vita and her singing with the Velvet Underground, Nico was nevertheless a troubled soul whose iconic beauty was offset by a self-destructive urge and an inability to reconcile herself with life. Susanne Ofteringer's film charts Nico's life, from her birth in postwar Germany to her heroin-ravaged death.
