Wow! Who knew a Czech movie could be so fun. . . and interesting
What a cool film! Just got back in the States from a vacation in Prague where I saw this film. Couldn't believe - -it a Czech film, in English! The people in the film were really interesting. . . kind of strange in a good way. Quirky comes to mind, but they are certainly fun. And the set was super amazing. . . real in a kind of surreal way . . . it was just so visually interesting. Not something you see in every other film, that's for sure. . . same goes for the characters. The story is a bit untraditional. . . it's not a story story. It's more like a look at an event, then you get to see from everyone else's point of view how they interpreted what happened. With the 'cast of characters' living at Close To Heaven Hotel you can imagine how different each of their experiences were from one another. For example, the storyteller, Samuel describes and interaction he observed between two of the characters -- Ernest and the Old Lady. All three of them had a very different point of view about the same event. . . Intriguing! So true of real life, too! Hope it makes it here to the States. . . I'd see it again! Actually, I know I'd see things I didn't even see the first time. . . so I'd definitely go again!
