Storyline

33-year-old Roman is one of twelve people who decide to undergo group therapy in an isolated community in order to tackle their drug addition. Like the others, he also brings with him a murky past which he tries to come to terms with - perhaps it will help him find a new life for himself. But in this thickening atmosphere of suspicion and lies, who can still be trusted? Written by Karlovy Vary Film Festival

Good but hard to watch film
10 May 2007 | by (Czech Republic) – See all my reviews

shot in a realistic, almost documentary style, Rules of Lies, is tough look at drug addiction and different attempts at recovery. It is the story of a group of people who strand themselves at an isolated farm to do manual labor and engage in group therapy to try to overcome their drug addiction. They have many rules which they must follow in order to achieve this goal.. I won't tell you more but it's gripping and harsh.. no make up, no fancy lighting.. just brutal real life.

Fine performances all around, especially Jiri Langmejer acting against type, playing a hard boiled addict and dealer.

Well worth a look.
