Storyline

Tomás Matonoha, Pavel Liska, Josef Polásek and Marek Daniel met during their studies at JAMU (Janacek's Academy of Performing Arts) and created a creative foursome bound together with close friendship. As time went by, it turned out that despite all four of them are rather successful, they are struggling for life and encountering existential problems and doubts. In their forties, they decide to "travel back in time" and shoot a film about their youth, vanished energy, lost illusions and long gone naivety. Unexpectedly, a story about friendship, crisis and absurdity in the life of an actor, balancing between reality and illusions, is created. Written by Czech film center

audacity
5 February 2013 | by See all my reviews

men in forties revolves memorial itself. shoddy script, if any. dialogs almost adolescent. story bland, rather embarrassing. scenes as if from time trials today are laughable today's students, those interested in working. why it appears the Polish investor, is he crazy? titles to see the contribution of the taxpayer, how long are we going to pay someone's private entertainment? final cut gives the impression that instead of the usual large waste is used in the final version of all images. if someone is mindless, should adjust their activities to the state. film is unnecessarily wasted time and energy of all the participants, and spectators. I'm shame for such a fellow.
