Storyline

A poetic comedy set in a pub situated on an inlet and called At the Ferryman's, which is run by pub-keeper Tonda (Jirí Schmitzer) and his companion Andula (Lenka Vlasáková). Among the pub-goers is Kája (Miroslav Vladyka), who compensates for his tendency to gamble (thanks to which is marriage is on the rocks) by playing cards at the pub with his friends. Besides his salary as a security guard at an art gallery, he has saved a pretty penny over the years by posing as a chimney sweep for newlyweds' photos, and now he wants to use it to give his wife (Simona Babcáková) a long-promised seaside holiday, a promise which breathes new life into their relationship. But in a moment of weakness, Kája loses all of his savings playing the shell game at the marketplace. So as not to lose the rekindled love of his wife, he requests the help of his friends from the pub. Combining their forces, they eventually manage to slam the shell-game gang and recover his money. The whole experience has a ... Written by Czech film center

Hrebejk’s lazy summer
24 April 2009 | by (Prague, Czech Republic) – See all my reviews

This Hrebejk’s comedy is set in Prague, four years after the democratic “Velvet revolution” of 1989. This was an era of sudden freedom, transition and confusion. Most people got carried away, quickly abandoning the old values and uncritically accepting the new. Some people just took a break…

The first half of the film portrays the lazy summer mood of a community gathered around a secluded makeshift pub. The film moves very slowly, which makes you feel like you were sitting at the table with them trying to find some meaning on the bottom of the pint. The tempo changes rapidly when Kaja (Miroslav Vladyka) loses his savings to a gang of crooks. Mrklas (Bolek Polivka), a retired magician, seizes this chance to do something useful and recruits a highly unprofessional team to face the gang. This lets Bolek Polivka deliver yet another hysterical performance, which even improves as the film progresses.

U me dobry bears a strong resemblance to Hrebejk’s Pelisky and Pupendo, which may both make good introduction to this film. In all the films the relations are seemingly friendly but the characters are struggling to openly express their friendship. This time they might have found a way.
