The last drop for Jan's resolution is the voluntary death of his father-in-law, whose strength and patience ran dry. Grandma made decisions about Grandpa's life, old age as well as the funeral. Jan is sure that he and his wife Olga are on the same route. He recalls his past life when he used to have his own will and dreams and he wants to live again with dignity and freedom. He longs to control his own life again. And his solution is escape from the present life. In this movie we watch, in parallel ,the fates of Jan's married daughters Olinka and Alenka and his sons-in-law Erik and Pepík.Written by
Is there anyone truly free? This film tackles that question. Jan so desperately wants to escape his present life that he is ready to go to the lunatic asylum just so he can get rid of his past life which makes him so unhappy. Film is full of humor which is so connected to the Czech cinematography. Acting is excellent and I have to say that this film brings the best of Czech film making.
If you are lucky enough to be able to see this film you will not be disappointed. I strongly recommend that you obtain a copy somehow and watch it.
