Storyline

Bestiar is the story of the fateful relationship Karolina - a political science major and a journalist - has with Alex, who, despite being extremely successful in his career, is actually emotionally torn inside. Each new relationship and experience (no matter how fleeting) has a profound impact on Karolína, who realizes that although women aren't born beasts, they can become them. But without innate bestial instincts it's futile! Bestiar is a tragicomic tale of the personal quest of a woman attempting to find the right values in a labyrinth of interpersonal relationships. Until now, that luxury - "experiencing the world" - has been granted mostly only to male characters. Written by Jara

thoughtful film about relationships
3 September 2013 | by fullmoon7461-908-439866See all my reviews

This is a great film about a young woman's journey into discovering herself through a series of relationships with many different types of men.

it's a who's who of Czech male actors, which is a real treat. If you don't speak Czech, just watch it with subtitles, the translations are mostly pretty good.. though the English title of this film "The Bitch's Diary" makes it sound like a porn film... Bestiar, could be translated as "beastkeeper" which is fine as she looks for the beast within herself.

Sadly, we don't get to hear Danica's voice, as she's Slovak and it was decided that her accent wouldn't be understandable, so she's dubbed into Czech. it's really the only drawback to the film.

It's funny, touching and real... as we follow Karolina through the ups and downs of romance. It's a nice, feel-good film without pandering to the audience or the characters.
