Have you ever seen any Czech film? Wheter yes or not, this movie is perhaps the best shot taken in Czech Republic for ages. A great story about how a single person can face consequences of his memories, bad experience and false people surrounding him. If you ever felt lonely, all the scenes, the entire movie, would definitely capture you! Alois Nebel is a story about how a common people lived in an era, when the loneliness was everywhere, when working on a railway station was about self-fulfillment and when living in a virgin nature somewhere near to Czech-Polish frontiers was as great as living in a heaven. This movie is worth of every penny!
