In particular, he assisted in the production of films involving the actor-director Tomá. Vorel, Pražská pětka (Prague Five) and Kouř (Smoke). At the start of the 1990s, he became part of the Barrandov studio management, serving for seven years as its CEO. In 1997, he founded the company Silver Screen, devoted above all to the production of full-length Czech films. The year 1998 witnessed the first film distribution by the company, the film Postel (The Bed) by director Oskar Reif, in which Marhoul acted as producer with Jan Bílek. In 2003, his company created its first full-length feature, Mazaný Filip (Smart Phillip) and then in 2008 his second full-length feature, Tobruk (Tobruk). In addition, he designed and arranged the tenth-anniversary exhibition of the Tvrdohlaví group in the Wallenstein Riding School of the National Gallery (1999) as well as the permanent representative gallery for the group in Palace Lucerna (2000 . 2003).

Marhoul.s company has also been involved in a number of special public events, such as
support for Czech membership in NATO in 1998, or the Commemoration of the Victims of
Communism in 2005. Marhoul.s name is also recalled by many in conjunction with the
organisation of the NATO Summit in 2002 in Prague, specifically the arrangement of its
cultural events, as well as the celebrations of the 55th and 60th anniversaries of the end
of World War II (in Plzeň in 2000 and Prague in 2005).

the Basement Theatre (Divadlo SKLEP) along with occasional appearances in films and TV

presidium and governing board of the Czech Academy of Film and Television. In 2003,
his debut film Mazaný Filip (Smart Phillip) marked his breakthrough as a director. He
certified himself as a director when in 2009 Czech Academy of Film and Televison Arts

Film synopsis: 
There is only a very thin line between heroism and cowardice. Courage is the will power, which no man has enough to spare. If used, it is soon exhausted. Courage is the capital, which we spend gradually. Thus, the last order may be the order to pay out the account drawing to zero. The deepest fear rises when a man is floundered by a current, all alone, having nothing to hold on and not being able to cope. This is the main topic and the artistic motto of this wartime psychological drama. North Africa, II. WW, Fall 1941. Jiri Pospichal, twenty years old, signs up as a volunteer in the Czechoslovak army. His naive ideas about heroism are rawly confronted with the hell of the African desert, complicated relationships in his unit and the ubiquitous threat of death. All this takes its cruel toll in the shape of his gradual loss of self respect and courage. He is full of self-confidence and patriotic ideals, yet at the same time is deeply frustrated by his father, whom he views as a collaborator. His closest companion is a Jewish soldier, Jan Lieberman, in many ways more mature. Their opposite, in turn, is Corporal Kohák, a former member of the French Foreign Legion, for whom warfare is above all a profession The psychological drama between these three characters, the differing attitudes and personalities of each of them, are, during the course of the story and most clearly in its dramatic climax, brought into confrontation with a clear and harsh test of the moral character of all. The plot of the film is freely based on the classic American novel “The Red Badge of Courage” by Stephen Crane, first published in New York in 1897.
