Synopsis

Despite hundreds of hours of material featuring Václav Havel, the celebrated Czech writer, philosopher, dissident and statesman, a true film biography of this great European personality had not yet been made. Havel’s colourful life – his family, his childhood, his loves, his playwriting career and his famous political engagement – is captured in an intimate new documentary. The film traces Havel through his various roles and life stages, including those of intellectual rebel, admirer of women, lover of life, and a fan of the underground and rock music.
