what it’s about …

Three young men — played by Czech music and screen stars Vojtěch Dyk, Tomáš Klus, and Zdeněk Piškula — set out to see the world. Their parents hope the pilgrimage will encourage each of them to grow up, find a wife, and then return to run the family farm. But this is no ordinary trip, and the trio are soon magically transported into famous fairytales — including Little Red Riding Hood, Sleeping Beauty, and The Twelve Months! Love, laughter, life-long lessons, and not a few perilous situations follow. Brimming with clever humor and catchy songs, Three Brothers — directed by Academy Award-winner Jan Svěrák (Kolya, 1996) — was a box office champion in the Czech Republic, and won three revered Czech Lion Awards for Best Costumes, Best Make-Up, and Best Art Direction.
