Twist of fate and the twists of mind of the characters (mostly couples) combine in just the right twinkled absurd way in the interweaving episodes of this comedy. Each of the characters gets a good shot at being sarcastic and each is a sorry loser at some point yet none is turned into the butt of the joke. The place is Prague and the time is August 6th, 1995, except for one episode, set 50 years earlier in unflyable rain in the city of Kokura, Japan. Written by

Zelenka's sense of humor will get you, in the end. Provided you speak Czech, of course. If you do, this is a must-see movie. Do not expect comedy, though; rather be prepared to re-think your opinion of black humor and to get some bizarre ideas of what pastime is. Some of their best acting by Eva Holubova, Rudolf Hrusinsky, Jiri Kodet or Borivoj Navratil.
