Politics and romance in a successful mix
24 July 1999 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

I recently returned from Prague where I saw this Czech/US production. The film combines the return to the Czech Republic of a film-maker who left for political reasons a generation ago with the love story of his American assistant and the daughter of an old friend. Parts spoken in Czech are subtitled in English and vice versa. The political aspects are unusually sophisticated, nuanced and balanced and the romance is believable and compelling. The acting is good and the romantic leads very attractive. The writer/director clearly loves New York City and parts of the film are almost a love poem to the City itself. Adam Davidson, who plays the romantic lead, is an American whom I have never seen on film before, but who clearly has a bright future. Highly recommended.
