Jan Svěrák Çek Cumhuriyeti, 1996

mpho3's rating of the film Kolya

Kolya is, as Nitrate's Eddie Cockrell writes, "full of graceful, provocative imagery and metaphor." Jan Sverák [son of leading man Zdenek Sverák] draws a remarkable performance out of the young Andrej Chalimon as Kolya that is the heart and soul of the film." Chalimon was discovered in a Moscow kindergarten and chosen for being "the biggest troublemaker," which Sverák felt meant the biggest personality. Kudos. 3.5
