FORMAN VS. FORMAN
"Man's dreams must always aim beyond his abilities," Miloš Forman once said. His films are dreams made flesh, his life worthy of a film. He was filming in Paris while the tanks were rolling in Prague. Forced into exile, he celebrates great international success with films such as EINER FLOG ÜBER DAS KUCKUCKSNEST and AMADEUS. In FORMAN VS. FORMAN we meet the director, who died in 2018, and accompany him on the stages of his life. Impressive!
