Another lovely film by Zelenka, filled with quirky jokes and a sad kind of charm. I watched the film in the International Film Festival Rotterdam 2006 and left the cinema knowing I experienced something exceptional. The English title is Wrong Side Up. This movie is a little less underground than Year of the Devil (Rok Dabla), it starts out like a romantic comedy, but the intricate sidelines expose many little parts of other people's lives, so it results in a big story about longing. Longing for love, friendship and the complications that follow typical tendencies and excesses. The ending is bittersweet like the film itself, which is completely set against the background of Prague in early summer. I absolutely recommend it!
