The Country Teacher
A man struggles to understand and accept both himself and others in this pastoral drama from Czech filmmaker Bohdan Sláma. Petr (Pavel Liska) is a schoolteacher who has grown tired of life in Prague and wants out of his dead-end relationship with another man. Petr is still coming to terms with his sexuality, and he decides to take a job in a small farming community where he can start his life over. As Petr settles into his new teaching position, he strikes up a friendship with his neighbors -- a ruggedly independent single woman, Marie (Zuzana Bydzovská), and her handsome teenage son, Lada (Ladislav Sedivý). Petr gains a new lease on life in the country, but his simple life becomes profoundly difficult when he finds himself increasingly attracted to Lada, while Marie makes it clear she has strong feelings for Petr. Venkovský Ucitel (aka A Country Teacher) received its North American premiere at the 2008 Toronto International Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
