Petr, youthful, quiet, and sensitive, comes from Prague to teach natural science in a country town. The gruff principal asks what he's running from and predicts he'll be gone in six months. Marie, a widow with a teen son, Lada, befriends Petr. She's lonely. Petr does some chores at her farm and watches Lada with his weekend girlfriend, Bara. We meet Petr's parents and understand some of why he left Prague, then Petr's friend Mihi pays a visit and we understand more. Mihi throws a wrench in things, and Lada comes to Petr for help. Has Petr found his place in the world, but what about his nature? Written by
I saw this last year in a beautiful theater downtown where one sits in an easy chair and has a beer. I went with two friends. We went reluctantly, more for the chairs and beer than for any high cinematic experience; picking this movie out of a handful that were playing at the time. I think we were really lucky to see it. I wept a few times, with sadness in the middle, with joy towards the end. Very subtly told, beautifully shot. I really loved it. All the roles were well acted. The final scene was magical. One of a dozen movies that have ever moved me in this way. I'm very appreciative to the filmmakers. Thank you. And since I need a few more words for the ten lines.
