Storyline

Young Jakub, whose true love Vera has been killed, is convinced that the regional mafia boss was responsible for her death. Jakub is a junkie and occasional drug dealer, but is fighting his drug dependence and wants to avenge his girl's death. The time for revenge is arranged for the fancy-dress party at the ZOO night-club, but at the key moment Jakub finds himself incapable of shooting the man he believes to be the murderer, and has to flee. However, he discovers a witness who is able to clarify the circumstances of Vera's death, and the story reaches its fateful denouement. Written by Ceskatelevize.cz

Slightly preaching, but a really nice story and a funny film.
17 June 2003 | by See all my reviews

I saw this a year ago on my visit in Prague. It had English subtitles, so I understood it pretty well.

First of all, the story was inspiring & interesting. In the end the whole thing unfolds and things aren't as they seemed in the beginning. Brilliant. I love to dialogue between the two main characters. It was pretty funny. Their drugged up moments were interesting, the way they tried to get to the bottom of Vera's death..

The night life of Prague seemed exciting, if not too involved around drugs. Hehe. In the end, the movie seemed like it was just saying "If you do drugs, this is what will happen!". This was slightly boring, but if you don't consider the message too much, you'll get an interesting story with fascinating characters and some funny dialogue. If you want to watch a Czech film, watch this one. 8/10
