Editor's Note
When a financially strapped former symphony cellist, now making a meager living by playing at funerals, gets pressured into a paper marriage with a friend's single-mother niece, his roving-eye bachelor life is turned upside-down. The beautiful young woman immediately abandons her new husband and her five-year-old son, and the unlikely duo struggles to adjust to their new lives in Prague on the eve of 1989's Velvet Revolution. Winner of the Golden Globe for Best Foreign Language Film. Academy Award: Best Foreign Language Film.

Plot Summary
Set in Czechoslovakia shortly before the 1989 Velvet Revolution, "Kolya" is the story of an aging cynic named Frantisek, a Czech who weds a Russian woman for her money. Suddenly, the woman flees to West Germany, leaving behind her young son Kolya. The crotchety Frantisek wants nothing to do with the child -- they don't even speak the same language. But as the old man tries to dump Kolya on someone else, the pair slowly develop a lasting, poignant relationship, that enriches both of their lives.
