This is very straight forward picture about raw reality if you did not fit right into the society system during communism time. I expect everyone ho likes themes with strong psychological lines will be interested as well as people who are interested in picturing the society on the east side of 20th century world. My movie-genre orientation is a bit different and i selected exceptionally this type of movie. Even through i got quite deep impression and would not say anything particularly bad. The set and the actor performances are convincing with topping main character impersonated by Ondrej Maly as Antonin. Not to say only pros - there have been some parts of the story which i would rate as a bit weaker, but i could not describe the details without spoilers.
