Documentary maker Jan Holman follows the ultrafamous singer/songwriter Jaromír Novahica during his tour with the band Cechomor. The combination is very succesful, but it draws a heavy toll on the band members and Jan Holman.
Jan Holman, a Dutch documentary maker, runs in a Czech alcohol clinic into Jaromír Nohavica, an ultrafamous singer/songwriter. Holman gets interested in Jaromír and follows him during his comeback. To help his former guitarist Karel Plíhal, who is unable to speak anymore, Nohavica decides to cooperate with the band Cechomor. The success is overwhelming, the combination attracts full houses. But soon the success draws a heavy toll on the band members and Jan Holman.Written by

No all time best, but why not to have a nice homage to Nohavica and Plihal?
Just seen this movie. The most striking thing about it was that it is almost a copy of the previous Zelenka's film on musicians - Happy End (Mnaga a Zdorp): large part is spoken in English by a foreigner who serves as an independent observer of the described Czech artist. I am not a fan of Nohavica or Plihal, but this was a pleasant movie. Nohavica is a folk star for masses of people without much presence in the media. Therefore, we will be grateful to Zelenka in the future to have this as a memory on the excellent artist.
