Storyline

A Little Piece of Heaven tells a story of love, friendship, and solidarity, aspects of life that allows us to live with dignity even at the most difficult of times. Set within the walls of a Communist prison of the 1950s, a tale unfolds of a young couples' fragile love. An angry young man Lubos (Jakub Doubrava) always felt defiance toward everything around him, and eventually this trait lands him in court. The verdict is clear and the punishment long and hard. But even in prison Lubos is unable to tame his love of jazz or the eternally blazing flame of rebellion he carries inside. There is no place on earth where love cannot grow. Lubos meets Dana (Tatiana Pauhofová) in prison. Out of solidarity and support, their fellow prisoners hatch a small rebellion to help them fulfill their love - a love which has appeared in the wrong place at the wrong time.

untypically Eastern European
4 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This Eastern European movie has everything you expect: nothing ever works out, life is unfair, the personal condition is one of doom, life is unfair, it all ends badly, and oh, by the way, life is unfair.

And with the advantages this approach offers, this movie, about love in the gulag of a political prison in Communist-era Czechoslovakia, comes close to utilizing the concept fully. The characters, when faced with the worst possible conditions react with optimism. "Well, if I get the death penalty, at least that will be something new" describes well how the prisoners view their doomed state of existence.

Lubos, in prison for 12 years ("12 or 120, it doesn't matter") for abetting his father in subversive activities, is given a long sentence in a political prison. He gets to glance, and then fall in love with, young Dana. They steal glances, kisses, embraces. Their journey through the system is important as an exercise not in faith, but in the great gift that life can give to the individual who wants to see it.

I'll take this sort of "Eastern European Movie Syndrome" anytime.
