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.

one of best films i have seen
12 March 1999 | by (Bratislava, Slovakia) – See all my reviews

A-must-see for TV watchers - it's about TV taking energy from several people and about parallel world which ,,copies" of this people live in parallel TV-world. Very well-done (i loved macroview from inside of main hero's veins) and very funny.
