Sunday is the 20th anniversary of the death of Rudolf Hrušínský, one of the all-time greats of Czech acting. The hugely popular thespian is best remembered for a series of roles in films such as The Cremator, adaptations of The Good Soldier Švejk and – in collaboration with director Jiří Menzel – Capricious Summer, Cutting it Short and My Sweet Little Village. Hrušínský was a member of parliament for a brief period following the fall of communism.
