Jiří Menzel in Bucharest

Studio Movie Hall housed a retro of best Menzel’s films (May 16–19). Jiří Menzel is one of the best known film directors. On Monday, May 16 the Czech film director was invited to express some thoughts for the Romanian audience. The gala opened Postřiziny, which may be translated as „scenes of life” or „cut‑offs”),. Menzel autographed on the booklets related to the event. The guests tasted the wonderful Czech beer—to note that the story of the film takes place in a brewery, of course! 

The picture below shows Menzel autographing on our booklet.
