Additional Information

Sixteen year old Marek (Mirek Caslavka) leaves his dreary small town life for the beautiful but treacherous streets of Prague, a city where everything can be had for a price. He is quickly lured by a greasy pimp into selling his body to the many tourists who flock to the city for its cathedrals, castles and tender male flesh. Emboldended by his clear marketability (he's gorgeous), Marek and his handsome streetwise buddy David decide to enter the teen flesh trade on their own. But kinky johns, all too available drugs and their own self destructive natures propel them instead into a hellish world in which the instinct to survive is their only hope. Directed by leading Czech filmmaker Wiktor Grodecki (Not Angels But Angles, Body Without Soul), Mandragora is based on true stories with a mostly non-professional cast (including actual prostitutes) and shot on the streets, train stations, and sex clubs of Prague.

What "Pusher" did for the drug trade, "Mandragora" does for teenage male prostitution. It's an incredibly brutal and honest look at the life of a Czechoslovakian boy who runs away to Prague in order to escape an unhappy home life in a small town. Little does he know he had it very good at home. The film is incredibly graphic on all counts, but needs to be to make its point. This is not a film for children or the squeamish as there is full-frontal nudity, depictions of graphic sex, extreme violence, sadism, drug use, self-mutilation and suicide. It's an excellent film, but definitely not a happy film. In and of itself, this film rates 5 stars.
Now let's discuss the DVD itself. It's terrible. The studio that released this film, Water Bearer, apparently did so without love or care for this film, just the possibility of making some fast money. The print used for this transfer skips in several places (this is really unacceptable as the film is only four years old... Read more
The story of a Czech runaway's descent into the world of drugs and male prostitution. If you ever bought a Bel Ami video, this might make you think twice about the world that these boys come out of. Excellent acting, good story, might be too intense for many. Makes _Basketball Diaries_ look like a Disney movie, so beware.
NOTE: According to the dictionary: Mandragora is 1) a plant of nightshade family: a plant with a forked root resembling a human body that was formerly believed to have magical powers and was made into a drug and 2)a 14th century alteration of medieval Latin mandragora, influenced by man, drake "dragon" (from its emetic and narcotic properties).

MANDRAGORA, the astonishing film from the Czech Republic written by Wiktor Grodecki (who also directs) and David Svec (who also acts in the film), is aptly named: mandragora is the world of male prostitution that seduces young lads with promises of money and ultimately poisons them with the burning disease of loss of self respect and ultimately of life.

Marek (Miroslav Caslavka in a stunning performance) is a beautiful 15-year-old kid from a little village in the Czech Republic who has aligned himself with petty criminals to have better things such as classy clothing, a lad whose single father (Jirí Kodes) demands... Read more
