Rudý kapitán

The Red Captain is an adaptation of a 2007 detective novel, which was published in the Czech Republic under the title Kapitán Smrt (Captain Death). The author Dominik Dán, who is very popular in Slovakia, is shrouded in mystery and the aura of someone who has actually gone through a lot of the things he describes in his books. This long awaited film set in the era of early 90s deals with the investigation of a former legendary StB agent with the recent separation of Czechoslovakia happening in the background.
