Storyline

A young girl's family hits crisis point when her mother's former lover returns to town. We see both a child's developing lens of the world, via Terezka's drawings, as she becomes immersed in the Red Riding Hood tale when Halloween approaches. Terezka's fantasy landscape increasingly mirrors, then collides with her opera singer mother's dissatisfaction with her own life in Czechoslovakia, and grinding pressure on her father as head of an airport's security.

Film Festival Gem
24 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this a few years ago at the Chicago International Film Festival and it's a great example of why it's worth the time and expense of going to film festivals. It's really a lovely film and it's unfortunate more people don't have a chance to see it. I just recommended it to a friend last night as a good example of a Czech film that isn't dour, but sadly it doesn't seem to be available in the US. I am not ordinarily a great fan of movies about children, but this film is an exception. In the film, a little girl responds to her parents' marital troubles by imagining everything through the lens of a sort of Little Red Riding Hood fantasy. It was graceful and unexpected and I hope some day I'll be able to stream it online or something.
