In Year of the Devil a Czech folk star, a band of funeral musicians, and a Dutch filmmaker stumble towards enlightenment on a remarkable musical tour. Writer/director Petr Zelenka fuses fact and fiction in a music-filled, magical adventure that has ghosts and guardian angels helping people hear the melodies within them. When the folk star approaches the band asking them to perform with him, he thinks they will help cure his friend Karel Plíhal. They think he will help them become famous, and the filmmaker thinks he has found a subject for a film. Naturally they are all right, but all of them get more than they bargained for.
