Lost in Munich
(Ztraceni v Mnichově) Director: Petr Zelenka, CZ, 2015, Czech and French version / Czech subtitles, 105 min
Sir P, a 90-year-old talking grey parrot that once belonged to Edouard Daladier, finds himself in Prague at the invitation of the French Cultural Institute as a living relic of the time of the Munich Agreement. The Czech side organizes a rather absurd press conference at which the gentleman does indeed repeat certain key statements ascribed to his erstwhile owner. The parrot is kidnapped by Pavel, a Czech journalist, and his controversial statements on Edouard Daladier cause something of an accidental political scandal.
