Storyline

Honza, a computer programmer, spends most of his time e-mailing and upgrading and attaching and loading. Heading off for a weekend trip in the countryside with his preteen son from a failed marriage, he naturally brings along his mobile, laptop and digital camera. But once there he stays for weeks, enjoying what are the happiest moments of his life with his son in a little village at the foot of the mountains. He befriends the locals and becomes involved with an attractive and rebellious girl called Markéta. Honza falls not only for her charms but also for the enticing aroma of the liqueurs made by her down-to-earth granny, the rough-and ready friendship of Ludva and Vlasticka's rural family, and the quaint peculiarities of country life. When the laws of business call Honza back to the "civilized" world he returns purified and enriched with experiences that he could never get from city life. Written by Ceskatelevize.cz

10 as a documentary 6 as a drama
8 February 2003 | by Exiled_ArchangelSee all my reviews

If you want to put the scope on the Czech countryside life, and witness the lives of some weird people, this movie would be classified as a perfect documentary for you. What I like about it is that it feels very Czech as it's supposed to, as someone has mentioned earlier on a comment here. But then again, you can see that it's the first professional work of a good amount of the cast, and unfortunately it's not hard to spot when you watch it.

A young beautiful woman, and standing out against city life are good points to make a movie, but not enough to make it good. It has some artificial scenes that come out of the blue, and the poor acting of some characters hits the eye. Compared to the other Czech movies I've seen, this one's amateur and disappointing. The director has tried to put emphasis on the beauty of country life, but the beauty of Markéta catches the eye much more as the film goes on.

All this reminded me of the Hungarian movies I used to watch on Istanbul film festival. You go, watch, and get something different but not wonderful, and say "Well at least we acquired some culture". That's it! You can put yourself as a character into the village life, but you don't say "Boy, now that's what I call a film!" after the last scene fades away.

If you're looking for something VERY different, don't await the next second to see this one; but if you're looking for a masterpiece, stick to Pelisky or Dark Blue World.
