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.

Lovely film about interpersonal relations and family
27 August 2005 | by basak-tosunSee all my reviews

I watched the film years ago at Bursa Festival. It is a lovely film. It has a very interesting and entertaining story. The actors are very good.

Here is the story: A family travels Czech Republic and Slovakia in order to bury the cremated remains of their grand-father since the grand-mother tells that this was his last request. Three generations (grand-mother, daughters, son-in-laws, grandchildren, a stuffed rabbit) travels in two automobiles. It begins as a boring travel...There are generation gaps, personnel problems and quarrels between all family members and nobody except the grand-mother is willing to make this trip. Hoewever, the 2 days they spend together turns to be the most unforgettable days of their lives...
