Sixty-year old Jindrich is waiting for a heart transplant. His wife, in an effort to protect him from a heart attack, has moved with him and their teenage daughter to their cottage in the countryside, so that he would have an absolutely peaceful life. But their son David comes for a holiday and he is not alone. He would like to discuss his life situation with his father but his mother intervenes as she is afraid that it would upset his father. Is, however, the worry about his health the real reason why she is making her children lie to their father?
The first temptation is to critic it. For many reasons. But it is just a beautiful film, saved by the splendid performance of Alena Mihulova and Antonin Prochazka , by the wood inn of house and by the inspired end. And, sure, not the last, by the mix of humor and melancholia, well working . Short, a film about love, parenthood, Macha and Houska castle. And, sure, about a letter.
