great picture about the life in a postcommunist country
it was a very sensitive and the very first film about the fresh feelings just came up after the political changes (2 years after the first free elections). of course, this film was touching those who lived through that incredible changes. it was often devastating or pathetic for the individual. having seen this film in 1992 it was really moving, sad but elevating.
