Family movie for rainy Sunday afternoons
9 July 2005 | by (Czech Republic) – See all my reviews

She is a ballet dancer living with her 8 years old son with no husband. Hardly to catch up with the speed of life and care of her son. He is mountain rescue leader. They meet on so much desired vacation in the mountains while she is the only one to know that he is the father of the boy. She has to leave the boy with man for two days and ...

well, this sound pretty much like a drama, but it is not. It is more of a family comedy for rainy afternoons. This movie stands on a talent of the small boy, played by Tomas Holy, who accompanied by the verbal humour, is unbeatable. I am not sure if this was ever translated, but if you find a copy in your language, do not hesitate.
