Velvet Terrorists / Zamatoví teroristi
Three romantic heroes, who had a go at armed resistance against the communistic power in Czechoslovakia. All of them were sentenced according to the paragraph 93 – terror, neither of them, however, had killed nor injured anybody.
A night before May 1st, Stano had wanted to blow up a tribune, on which communistic fat cats were to sit. But he´d got drunk and the policemen found him staggering around the tribune with a bag full of explosives. He spent 5 years in prison.
Fero had wanted to assassinate president Gustáv Husák. But he didn’t manage to contact the CIA (they didn’t take his calls seriously). The police discovered his weapon and explosives hideaway and he was sentenced for 14 years.
Vladimír used to blow up bulletin boards of the Communistic Party. 53 altogether. He spent more than 4 years in prison.
But even terrorists have their private lives, their loves, their families.
And that is what this film is about.
