About Colette

Arnošt Lustig is one of the world’s most renowned literary authors of our times. Lustig’s novel Colette draws on his personal Nazi Concentration Camp experience and his own recollection of several escape attempts from the hell of the Auschwitz. The Pulitzer Prize-nominated author, in cooperation with writer/director Milan Cieslar, tells a tale about the power of love under extreme life circumstances. It is a story of a man and his vigorous determination to escape from a hopeless life condition and his courage to face death. A breathtaking drama of young lovers running away from the hell of Auschwitz where they live in a special commando Kanada.
