Storyline

A dark and absurd road-movie comedy in which the grandmother fulfills a dream, the mother stops treating her daughters like kids, the daughters stop treating their husbands like idiots, and the father's ashes get spread all over the country. It's almost six months since he died and his ashes are still in grandma's cupboard. Everyone in the family seems to have grieved enough and each has his or her own new problems. Younger daughter, Zuzana is about to leave her husband Pavel for a slightly more successful painter of abstract pictures. Her sister, Ilona, mischievous little Leon's exhausted and pregnant mother, feels neglected by a husband who seems to enjoy referring to her as head-cheese. Their mother, Milada, feels more and more useless and constantly invades Ilona's household offering help and nearly driving her son-in-law crazy. And grandma silently dreams about returning to her hometown in Slovakia at least once before she dies. Thus it's probably no accident that she refuses to ... Written by Czech film center

A Czech road film
20 November 2005 | by Red-125See all my reviews

Vylet (2002), a Czech film written and directed by Alice Nellis, was shown at the Rochester High Falls Film Festival with the title "Some Secrets."

This is a modest movie, as are so many Czech films. It's basically a road movie--a family sets out from the Czech Republic to travel to Slovakia. Their mission is to bury the cremated ashes of the family patriarch. (The grandfather had been born in what is now Slovakia, and his dying wish was to be buried in his place of birth.)

As expected, the group meets with numerous problems and obstacles, including the fact that they now encounter border guards when traveling to what was formerly part of the same country.

Nothing significant happens, and there isn't any epiphany or resolution, but the movie is worth seeing for the excellent acting of the cast, for a glimpse of a different culture, and for a reminder that some problems--especially family problems--are universal.
