[Služobníci], directed by Ivan Ostrochovský, Slovakia/Romania/Czech Republic/Ireland 2020, 80' (English friendly)
Set during the Cold War, Ostrochovský’s passionate hard-boiled detective story explores the clash between faith and ideology and the powerful force of manipulation used by both God’s servants and the servants of the system. This deeply engrossing Eastern European film noir focuses on the fates of two seminarians, boys from the provinces, who enter the walls of the monastery with optimism and zeal. They don’t, however, realize that they are entering a world of conspiracies, betrayals and broken lives – and that their friendship will be put to the ultimate test.
