Historical drama from Czechoslovakia after World War II.

Film TOMAN is a historical drama about Mr. Zdenek Toman, the real-life contradictory person who led the Department of Foreign Intelligence and who significantly influenced political developments in Czechoslovakia in ys. 1945-48, which substantially contributed to the fact that in the year 1948 the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia (CPC) seized power by a coup.

Who was TOMAN?

The title character is an unsavory politician and dubious entrepreneur, but also the savior of hundreds of Eastern European Jews, often referred to as “the Czech Schindler.” Zdeněk Toman was born Zoltán Goldberger in 1909, in Sobrance, Slovakia, the son of Hungarian Jews. We follow this unscrupulous careerist as he works his way up from low-level bureaucrat in the Czech-government-in-exile during World War II to the head of Foreign Intelligence in Czechoslovakia 1945-48. In this position, he blackmails, intimidates, and levies false accusations in order to strengthen the communist presence in the bureau. He also exploits his diplomatic passport and international contacts to fraudulently raise money for Communist Party electoral campaigns. But he organizes the departure of Jews and refugees who survived the Holocaust through Czechoslovakia to Palestine, then supplies them with arms. His help, however, was never selfless.
 
This fascinating biopic comes from Ondrej Trojan, the director of Želary (PSIFF 2004), an Oscar® nominee for Best Foreign Film.

Cast:  Jiří Macháček, Kateřina Winterová, Kristýna Boková, Marian Mitaš, Stanislav Majer, Lukáš Latinák, Petr Vaněk, Roman Luknár, Táňa Pauhofová, Marek Taclík, Martin Finger, Radek Holub, Miroslav Táborský, Václav Neužil, Jaroslav Plesl, Pavel Liška, Aleš Procházka and others.

REVIEW:

Trojan's new Toman film disrupts our pathetic view of history and shows the naked truth.
