CHARLATAN is the newest biopic by prolific Polish director, Agnieszka Holland inspired by the true story of herbalist Jan Mikolášek, who dedicated his life to caring for the sick in spite of facing immense obstacles in his private and public life. Born at the turn of the 20th century, Mikolášek wins fame and fortune using unorthodox treatment methods to cure a wide range of diseases. Already a local institution in Czechoslovakia before World War II, the healer gains in reputation and wealth whether during the Nazi occupation or under the Communist rule. One after the other, every regime will want to use his skills and in return gives him protection. But what will be the cost of maintaining this status as the tide turns?
