In the new Radim Špaček movie, Zlatý podraz has turned one of the golden Ezecoslovakia basketball players and has met in detail the unique sports episode of our post-war history. "I knew that what was happening was awful. I'm even more incredible in my organization to come," said a 20-year-old actor.
You have the Golden Podras story, which tells a story after the war from Czechoslovakia basketball players. How do you feel about the result? You are being moved.
That degree of emotion is very huge. We all fell in love with each other during shooting. When we found our ordinary work, which we had formed for more than a year, on the big screen, we felt it was true and had succeeded in making the movie. It will impress you.
Did you ever know the story of Czechoslovakian basketball players, who, as the only one, did not succeed in winning gold for the Republic on the international stage?
When I was pouring, I did not even know that this was happening. Finally, when I learned more, I started searching for information. From the beginning, it was clear to me that there was a story that was not on the screen again and that it had great potential.
So, did you try to study the time and circumstances in which the story of the film takes place?
Reflections of what happened to my character and around. For example, my film dad is a falcon, so I started in the Sokol processes and, in general, I tried to find out the balconies as much as possible. I was interested in the general atmosphere of sports time. I can calculate the various commitments and problems in the sport. And then, of course, I focused on the boys themselves, our basketball players.
Anything you wanted?
No. I knew that what was happening was horrible, and this awareness was only intensified in me. Everything I did was, but I'll be even more confident than the organization. The big incentive of the film is to bend the backs before the Soviet Union and ideology as such. Which one, in the case of basketball players, who hit the European Championship in 1951.
Do you think that something similar could be even today?
We know how it is here, and it's not good at all. I hope that what has been done under the past regime will not be repeated so much. On the other hand, who in 1945, after the end of the war, would have thought that something similar to him would be three years later. There are many things that we do not even count on and who can come and can be so awful. But I want to believe in the better variations.

Many surveys and surveys show that many young people today do not know what happened on August 21, 1968, or why it was so significant on November 17th. You are twenty years old, as you look at the fact that some of your peers are so basic do not have an overview? What is it
It would change the attitude towards young people altogether in education. I do not want to throw everyone in one bag, of course, but I believe that the education system in our country is not a good level. I've just tried it out recently. Although I'm interested in the content of many things, the system that said, you have to go there, you have to learn this, you must read this, and then you will get the paper. How can I motivate myself to have some crap at the end? I believe that something should change in this regard. However, films can also lead to some basic historical overview. Let people take a picture of this topic, like ours, and learn through the story more about the past. This is also a kind of fun education.
How did your physical preparation look like basketball views look credible?
We trained every Sunday for almost seven months. But with boys, we were so persuaded to get together in the park and out of work and to play with the other men who went there. I feel this is the sport I found myself in.
Outside the camera, the actors as well as the director made more than ten thousand movements together. You said you did not even need artificial sweat in the shots.
The clearance with clicks has already started the first shooting day. In front of the scene, one of the actors looked at his hands and said, "Hey, we should not pump a bit?" And so we started playing almost every scene, and the director Radim Špaček joined us. During the shooting of basketball scenes, we were pretty pretty. This is not usually the case of filming, but we were so excited and happy about this project that we had the power to distribute.
Your love loved real love, Simona Lewandowska, your love movie. What did she like working with each other?
We both were frightened at the beginning, but thanks to the party that met in the party, we started to look forward to the joint shooting.
When we talked about the last time a year ago, you said that you think that the creators and people of your people are coming to an end like Honzik of Narrative or Matthew of the fairytale The Three Brothers. How is it today? Do you still continue to think about yourself as a child actor?
I can not talk about it. She can make me give her or spit her who wants her. That feeling of maturity is something else. I have the impression that this movie could bring me out of the boy's picture of a fairytale or series story. Even so I'm really playing Honza! Maybe I'm looking at Honza. (laughter)
