Pelíšky (English: Cosy Dens) is a 1999 Czech film directed by Jan Hřebejk. It is loosely based on the novel Hovno Hoří (Czech: „Flaming Feces“) by Petr Šabach.

Pelíšky is a bittersweet coming-of-age story set in the months leading up to the ill-fated 1968 Prague Spring. Teenager Michal Šebek (Michael Beran) develops a crush on his neighbor, Jindřiška Krausová (Kristýna Nováková). Michal’s family is headed by a stubborn army officer who believes that the latest East German Tupperware will sufficiently shame those American imperialists, while Jindřiška’s father is an ardent foe of the Communists saved from prison only because he is a war hero. Much to the parents‘ dismay, the younger generation couldn’t care less for politics. Instead, Michal sports a Beatles mop-top and runs a local film group specialising in Hollywood and pre-war French films, while Jindřiška starts hanging out with a mysterious hipster.
