Three Brothers Film Review

The 2014 Czech box office champ is a joyous musical take on fairy tales from ‘Kolya’ helmer Jan Sverak.

Ever wonder what Czech director Jan Sverak has been up to since “Kolya” (1996), the winner of the best foreign-language film Oscar? Although none of the helmer’s recent work has achieved comparable impact, his films continue to rate highly in the domestic market: His latest, the delightful musical romp “Three Brothers,” was 2014’s Czech box office champ. Boasting upbeat music with rhyming lyrics, this humorous, satisfying pic weaves a trio of classic fairy tales into a connecting story about three brothers seeking adventure and life lessons. The result could work some magic as mainstream international fest fare.
