Based on novel “Hovno Hoří” (Shit Can Burn) by Petr Šabach, Cosy Dens was directed by one of the most prolific Czech filmmakers of recent times, Jan Hřebejk and released in 1999.

The plot is set during one of the most tragic days of the 20th century when the emerging democracy in Czechoslovakia was being crushed by the Soviet army invasion in August 1968.

This coming-of-age comedy depicts two families in a small suburban apartment building, where both fathers obsessed about politics, while unlike them, their teenage kids, being bored with politics, are instead drawn to the allure of the Capitalist West world—Rock and Roll, the latest sneakers and beautiful film stars.
