3 Seasons in Hell (Czech: 3 sezóny v pekle) is a 2009 Czech film directed by Tomáš Mašín. Set during the Soviet Union's takeover of Czechoslovakia in 1948, it is based on memoirs by Egon Bondy.[1]


Ray Bennett praised the performances of Krystof Hadek and Karolina Gruszka, saying that although initially shallow and inconsequential the viewer came to feel deeply involved in them.[1] Variety praised the cinematography and production design while finding the lead character annoying and unsympathetic.[2] What Culture found it balanced and interesting despite flaws, giving it 3/5.[3]
