Febiofest to screen the recently completed Czech/Austrian film Menandros & Thaïs

Menandros & Thaïs

This experimental adventure film is based on the novel of the same name by Ondřej Cikán, who calls it the wildest classical romance of all time. A group of pirates kidnap Thaïs during her wedding, her fiancé Menandros becomes a bloodthirsty avenger, and sets out to search for his beloved in the surreal world of Scythian cowboys, drugged dwarfs and underwater monsters. The directors merge the motifs of ancient Greek adventure novels with the vices of contemporary society and create a powerful stylized Odyssey – a classical road movie. “It is apparent that this film was created on a minimal budget but with maximal effort and enthusiasm. Where there are ideas, an excessive budget is not necessary, and this film proves this saying,” says Štefan Uhrík. This film was made by the Austrian/Czech group of artists Die Gruppe, co-produced by FAMU and Nutprodukce, and the company of Burning Bush creators.
