Pavel, a distinguished psychiatrist is about to receive an award for his life’s work and his role as a dissident; his handsome wife and adoring grown daughter are pleased the honor is coming his way. But Ludek, his son-in-law, employed on a documentary crew filming Pavel, resents that his own family, rooted in Czechoslovakia’s Communist past, ended up on the wrong side of history--while his wife’s is now la crème de la crème. When Ludek discovers that Pavel may have corroborated with the secret police in order to silence a romantic rival, the plot thickens immeasurably.

Kawasaki’s Rose considers the ways in which the past never stops informing the present, especially in societies where secrets were the way of life, and professional or personal success could depend upon a single well-placed piece of information, be it true or false. Like director Hrebejk’s best known film Divided We Fall (PSIFF 2001), it is a masterfully balanced comedic drama about the hard choices faced by Czech citizens during a time of historic duress.
