Storyline

Three young adults in Most sort out feelings and responsibilities: Monika's boyfriend has left for the States, her mother wants her to join him there, and if the invitation does come, what should she do? Toník is a nice guy, his love for Moni is unrequited. He's trying to rebuild his family's crumbling house; a nearby factory has made an offer to buy the land. With Moni, he watches out for the two young sons of Dasha, their friend who's in a hopeless long-term affair with a married man: Dasha is at once unstable, unrealistic, neglectful of her boys, and cruel to those who help. For whom is this something like happiness? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Film-making in its best
10 January 2006 | by filthy_morphineSee all my reviews

Definitely one of the best films I have ever seen. Slama has worked on this project for a long time and the result is really outstanding. The characters are very real and the depiction of life in terrible conditions is very faithful. Slama also carefully chose the actors and the choice was excellent. Also his work with actors is very natural and therefore the acting in the movie is unforced and smooth. This movie really got under my skin. Very clever, perfect workmanship and strong theme. I left the cinema and couldn't stop thinking about it. This is exactly the movie that starts up your mind and raises a lot of questions. But despite it's mostly sad movie it doesn't leave the sad feeling in you. After all it is optimistic, in the end it celebrates life and my opinion is that it raises the happy things in life.

I recommend this movie to everyone.

Good luck :)
