Storyline

Thirteen-year-old Vendula (Dita Kaplanová) dozes off at school and dreams about her parents riding in a carriage dressed in their wedding clothes. The young teacher is angry with the girl who has already failed a year, and has no idea that she is looking after three younger half-brothers. They all have a different father and their mother (Evelyna Steimarová) comes home noisy and drunk every day, often accompanied by a man. Early in the morning, Vendula helps her mother clean offices, and sometimes has to do the cleaning all by herself. Her eldest brother Libor is good at school and blindly adores his mother. Jeník is a talented flute player and much more cynical. The youngest Venousek is still a toddler. The only one who is cared of is Vendula by her father (Ladislav Frej), who has divorced his confirmed alcoholic wife years ago and has another daughter in his new family. All his attempts to persuade Vendula to move in with them are in vain. The girl is selflessly trying to keep the ... Written by NFA.cz

divka s musli is excellent movie
28 October 2006 | by pepto-peptoSee all my reviews

the name of the movie means-girl with a shell.

empty seashell is a only prized possession of vendula,teenage girl hero of this excellent,touching movie. she is in care of her 2 younger teenager bros and one little brother. vendula's mother is an alcoholic and wastes almost all her income for booze.and since family is without father,it's up to vendula to manage the small amounts of money her mother from hell leaves her each month and provide for family. throughout whole movie we see the horrors of such a life.director svoboda did perfect job-so are the performances of all actors.music is also very good and moving. when i first saw this movie back in 80's in good old czechoslovakia,two things happened to me ;i prayed to god for having such a good parents (even if i don't believe in god)and,being teenager myself,i fell in love with actress who played vendula-dita kaplanova.hope she's still single... all in all,one of the best movies of czech cinema ever-at least for me..
