Three young adults in Most sort out feelings and responsibilities: Monika's boyfriend has left for the States, her mother wants her to join him there, and if the invitation does come, what should she do? Toník is a nice guy, his love for Moni is unrequited. He's trying to rebuild his family's crumbling house; a nearby factory has made an offer to buy the land. With Moni, he watches out for the two young sons of Dasha, their friend who's in a hopeless long-term affair with a married man: Dasha is at once unstable, unrealistic, neglectful of her boys, and cruel to those who help. For whom is this something like happiness? Written by
Story of supermarket employee who is torn between her romantic but hopeless childhood friend and a man who can offer her a future abroad but no inner home. Playing in the most inhospitable environment, a silent beauty shines from the main characters hearts and enchants the viewer. Still there's nothing false or sweetish about the portrayal. The protagonist's neighbor, for example, an irresponsible, manic depressive young mother (fantastically portrayed by Anna Geislerová who, had she been American, would have gotten an Oscar for this part) with two little children and the next one to come surely tests our patience - and there's a kind of half-baked happy ending when it comes to her (she gets what she wants,neither knowing nor acknowledging what others have done to help her). Also the other actors (Tatiana Čecháková-Vilhelmová as Moni and Pavel Lika as Toník) are out of this world.
