The musical film The Three Brothers (Czech: Tři bratři) is the second feature film for children from director and producer Jan Svěrák, following Kooky in 2010. “While raising funds for the production we were frequently asked why we chose a fairy tale,” Jan Svěrák says. “The answer is simple. We wanted to give the classic Czech fairy tale back the self-confidence that it has lost in the past years due to the pressure of Hollywood blockbusters, which it tries to emulate with fantastic figures and tricks.” The director, an Academy Award winner for the film Kolya (Best Foreign Language Film, 1997), reckons that many fairy-tale adaptations offer a pop-culture mutation of traditional fairy tales, which distracts from their essence. “Classic stories should be passed on in their original form. I wouldn’t want my children to watch warped fairy-tale motives, like having Little Red Riding Hood fight vampires with a flame-thrower. Children need the fairy tale essentials.”
