Storyline

In this movie, TV sets are full of life. If a person is in TV (e.g. because it was filmed on the street) it has a double that's right in the TV set. This double needs energy from the true character to survive. Each time, the real human watches TV, his Double will pull life energy from him. So there's a mysterious Death-serial. Many persons die in front of their TV set and nobody knows why. Olda, the main character, is one of the persons, that get more and more weak. He is near death, till Fisarek, the natural healer appears.He teaches Olda how he can resist this magic force and how he can fight it.

Hilarious
20 November 2014 | by (Russian Federation) – See all my reviews

Frankly, while watching I didn't understand the element of the plot that the characters get their doubles created in the TV world. Maybe it was due to somewhat messy English subtitles. Still, the movie was very, very enjoyable. It was funny and smart. The humor was well on the level of the greatest French comedies. Pretty refreshing after all the loads of cheap, stupid humor you get in American comedies where they would throw pies at each others' faces. This movie definitely deserved more attention. I hope someone makes a similar movie on a bigger budget and with modern visuals about the today's obsession with social networks. E.g. every time someone opens their Facebook page, their life energy gets sucked out. Such a "modernized" remake would be a hit for sure.
