Unrealistic movie about nothing
8 January 2006 | by (Prague, Czech Republic) – See all my reviews

Very postmodernic colorful movie about nothing. We are in hotel in the middle of Prague - well, I don't know similar Prague hotel, where live old Czech people and speak English, even Czech TV moderators speak English - and we can see lives of some strange inhabitants - and owner of the hotel and receptionist. Young Smason paints his pictures and loves Emily - he also comments very rare and tiresome lives of other people in hotel. Well, there is some plot, but very far-fetched and unlogical. Maybe you hope, there is functional any poetic atmosphere, but not. If movie wanted something to say, I don't know what - and why, too. Acting is also terrible and spoken English for laughing.
