2012-05-14

{mosimage}BRATISLAVA: Juraj Nvota's latest film The Confidant which premiered in Slovakia on 19 April with 9,000 admissions on opening weekened, reached attendance of 21,000 in its first three weeks. The Czech premiere is scheduled for 5 July 2012.

The Confidant is a thriller about the clash of an individual facing the well-organized force of state security. Young Czech film star Jiří Mádl plays the role of Adam, a young radio ham forced to save his girlfriend Eve from official harassment and thus deciding to sign a "contract with the devil" of state security, becoming a secret police agent wiretapping people to obtain compromising materials to be used against them.

However, he soon finds out that he is under surveillance as well. His quest for the reasons takes him back to the period of his national military service when he happened to witness an order resulting in death. His one-time military superiors have since become high-ranking officers of the powerful state security corps and Adam's testimony could hurt their clean record.

The film is distributed by Continental Film (www.continental-film.sk) in Slovakia and by Bontonfilm (www.bontonfilm.cz) in the Czech Republic. The sales agent is under negotiation. The producers Attack Film (www.attackfilm.sk) will take the film to the Cannes market.
