technically outstanding and sometimes tragic testimony about life in Ostrava
There are many positives on this movie, otherwise seen only rarely in Czech or Slovak movie production. I am mainly speaking about how masterfully the "Sun State" is handled from a technical point of view. Movies from around here can seldom boast such an action-packed direction of photography, dynamic editing, cool music, let alone a combination of all of these. Moreover, most of the characters and dialogues seem actually really "real". However, as realistic and down-to-earth the script might be, I was kind of bored by the series of extremely unfortunate events, that has befallen our "labour class heroes". Everything that can get screwed, gets screwed in the worst possible way, which, in my opinion, harms the otherwise highly realistic tone of the narrative.
