What is maybe not immediately obvious in this movie is that the main character (who is a prosecutor rather than a lawyer) prosecutes people for the very exact crimes he is committing himself in his personal life, although in less acute and less obvious forms. Every day of the week is dedicated to a different crime. This subtle parallelism of situations and the perplexity of a hero confronted with moral choices are the essence of the movie. Similar themes also appear in Stuhr's previous screenplay, "Historie milosne", where he plays 4 different characters, who all need to decide what to do with problematic love.
