From Oscar-nominated writer/director Jan Hřebejk (Divided We Fall), THE TEACHER is a wildly entertaining black comedy inspired by the true story of a Communist-era school teacher who manipulated her pupils and their families for unprecedented personal gain.

“Exceptional. It functions beautifully on parallel levels, marrying a character-driven story with social concerns. Adroitly structured and sure-handed, it plays out with great skill, right down to a pitch-perfect finale. Wonderfully entertaining.” – THE LOS ANGELES TIMES

“A surefire crowdpleaser. Smoothly written, expertly directed and spiced with plenty of dry, dark Czech humour, it’s a dip into the recent Communist past which offers a morality lesson that has lost none of its relevance with the change of regimes and the passing of time.” – SCREEN INTERNATIONAL

“MEMORABLE…one of the most insightful and eye opening films on the failings of European Communism” LIMELIGHT.
