PRAGUE: The Czech dramatic comedy/mother-and-daughter road movie Dad’s Volha / Tatova volha by Jiri Vejdelek has topped the 2 M USD mark after six weeks in distribution in the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
The film was directed by Jiri Vejdelek with a cast that includes Bolek Polivka, Emilia Vasaryova and Tatiana Vihelmova. It was produced by Infinity Prague and coproduced by the Czech TV, with support from the Czech Film Fund and distributed by Cinemart. The film was in the 6th place on the Czech market and 17th place in Slovakia.
This film still has some way to go to catch up with Jan Sverak’s 2017 release Barefoot (Biograf Jan Svěrák Pictures), which reached just over 3 M USD at the Czech box office and is now in its 35th week in release, hanging on to the 19th place. Also still holding on at the box office is David Mrnka's historical/biographical film Milada, produced by Loaded Vision Entertainment and released by Bohemia M.P., now in its 24th week in distribution and in the 12th place, with nearly 700,000 USD at the box office.
