Yes, in my opinion, Pouta (Ties That Bind) is the best Czech movie of the last twenty years. This movie tells a story about a bad guy who gets attached to a stranger - pretty ginger girl who doesn't even know he exists. Antonín is a bad-ass, a member of secret police (the story is set to the 80's), and he's not a nice guy. He's secretive, reserved and emotionless - and on the edge of madness. And yet he has one passion, this plain ginger girl who is a lover of the man who Antonín monitors. Antonín's disturbed mind tells a lot about communist everyday reality but this is not really psychological movie. It's more like film noir, or dark thriller where you can watch mental decline of one bad-ass who deserves it. Still, the movie is very catchy, witty and satisfying. Try it. You won't be disappointed.
