My Uncle Archimedes

Můj strýček Archimedes

A comedy about a Greek migrant who came to Czechoslovakia in the late 1940s to flee his country’s civil war and found a new home here. The story is told through the eyes of the now adult Aris, Archimedes’ nephew, who recalls how the escape from Greece changed his uncle’s life. Soon after his arrival Archimedes find great support in his neighbour Novák, whose bitter attitude to the Communist regime Archimedes at first fails to comprehend, though he likes him very much. Ultimately, however, he is the only one who understands him. Their joint efforts to help Archimedes settle in Czechoslovakia, and subsequent efforts to help him return to Greece, lead to charming, moving and comic situations.
