Charlatan is a 2020 Czech biographical drama, by Agnieszka Holland, and it revolves around the healer Jan Mikolášek (1889–1973), who cured hundreds of people using plant-based remedies.

Among other prizes, the film was awarded Best Film at the 2021 Czech Lion Awards

“Jan Mikolášek was a well-known and successful Czech healer, who diagnosed and healed people using his intuition and his familiarity with plants. His remedies and prescriptions, although mostly plant-based, included lifestyle and dietary changes. He healed not only poor people from the villages but also many well-known people, including the Czechoslovak President, Antonín Zápotocký.”
