Few true stories tread the thin line between good and evil as precariously as that of Jan Mikolášek, a 20th-century Czech herbal healer whose great success masked the grimmest of secrets. As a show trial threatens to pry open these secrets and undo him, Jan's dichotomies are put to a final test, with the fate of his life's only love in the balance.
From Oscar, BAFTA and Emmy nominated filmmaker Agnieszka Holland, CHARLATAN was the official Czech entry for the 2021 Oscars.
