Storyline

A dark and absurd road-movie comedy in which the grandmother fulfills a dream, the mother stops treating her daughters like kids, the daughters stop treating their husbands like idiots, and the father's ashes get spread all over the country. It's almost six months since he died and his ashes are still in grandma's cupboard. Everyone in the family seems to have grieved enough and each has his or her own new problems. Younger daughter, Zuzana is about to leave her husband Pavel for a slightly more successful painter of abstract pictures. Her sister, Ilona, mischievous little Leon's exhausted and pregnant mother, feels neglected by a husband who seems to enjoy referring to her as head-cheese. Their mother, Milada, feels more and more useless and constantly invades Ilona's household offering help and nearly driving her son-in-law crazy. And grandma silently dreams about returning to her hometown in Slovakia at least once before she dies. Thus it's probably no accident that she refuses to ... Written by Czech film center

festival Festroia
12 June 2003 | by (Lisbon, portugal) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie, last night on the Portuguese festival Festroia(12/06/2003). for me, the only bad thing was the storie or argument of the storie, because it's nothing new, it's a kind of storie that you are familiar with, and you listen to it all the time every where. The good thing: the quality of the picture, the way they have film people and the landscapes, the soundtrack was perfect,fantastic! all the actors were so good.

congratulations, Marisa
