The best Czech movie of the year
29 August 2007 | by vjiristeSee all my reviews

I adore the movies from Alice Nellis and I think she is the best director and writer in Czech cinematography. Her masterpieces are sensible, witty and full of great ideas. Tajnosti have two main advantages: nonrecurring connection of music and picture, a talent actress in lead role and immediate atmosphere. In one moment you're moved and in a instant imaginative triple set you laughing. And never mind that you aren't woman over 40 years.

This movie can be create only thanks to Jan Svěrak, who became a producer of this movie and pay it from his pocket. And he never mind that make up a big competition to his movie The Empties in joust of Czech Lions Awards.
