Storyline

Robert works for a travel agency and helps to arrange scenes from the everyday lives of "ordinary" Czech families as an attraction for Japanese tourists. He also works as a kind of matchmaker and occasionally helps to put together some of his friends. He helps to separate his friend Hanka from Peter, an announcer for an independent radio station who tries to capture "real" life by recording the moments from "reality" and playing them over the air. Vesna, came to Prague from Macedonia because it is according to her the best place for UFOs to land, but her real reason for coming is somewhat different... Hanka is followed by the crazy Ondrej, until then a respected brain surgeon, and married with two kids. Through him she meets Jacob, who uses copious amounts of weed in order to be constructive in this gloomy world. On the other hand, this destroys his short-term memory - and he forgets that he already has a girlfriend. The disappointed Hanka runs to her parents, only to find some ...

Quotes

Jakub: [Talking into the camera] I get high because the world is cruel and people are lonely. I work so I can buy drugs that make people seem kind, friendly, free and beautiful. Trouble is, these drugs caused me to hurt someone. So it doesn't make sense for me to do them anymore. I've had it with drugs. I'm giving up weed.
[Raises his joint, looks at it, then looks back at the camera]
Jakub: This is my last joint. I'm not even going to finish it.

Rather good, even if not so great as Knoflikari
10 February 2001 | by michal.kasparek-2See all my reviews

I've seen this movie three or four times. It's funny, even if some dialogues aren't written optimally. I love two things in this film: the soundtrack, particularly brilliant song "Lucky Boy", and the figure Jakub (Jiri Machacek) - young man, which has almost destroyed his brain by marihuana. His funny quotes as "I'm on fire! Oh, boys, it's really funny!" are already legendary here in the Czech rep....
