A large section of the sun has melted off and hurtles towards the planet, causing rolling heat waves where surface temperatures rise to unbearable levels. During one of these heat waves, a young man (Vincent Hospodárský) meanders through a sleepy town, encountering a slew of townspeople who are unable to cool themselves in the stifling heat. With a captivating lead performance and a compelling ensemble of sweaty side characters, Brutal Heat hothouses both the scenes and the interactions, but tells its story with a surprising degree of soul, sensitivity and artistic control.
Hot from its premiere at this year’s Karlovy Vary Film Festival where it received special attention by the critics, director Albert Hospodárský’s debut Brutal Heat focuses an evocatively hellfire lens onto the coming-of-age genre, marking a distinct new voice in Czech cinema.
