Storyline

On 26 September 1928, Karel Capek and President T.G. Masaryk meet in the gardens of Topolcianky castle to decide about the fate of their joint literary work. Their fiction film dialogue is based on quotes from a future book and their mutual correspondence, considerably freeing the original format of literary conversation from binding conventions. Capek and Masaryk reproach and offend each other, but they also ask key personal questions and questions about the social functions of a writer and politician respectively. "It's a film about two extraordinary men; it's about the fact that emotions can be sometimes more powerful than ideas even in such exceptional people.

I love it
21 April 2019 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

Maybe, it is far to be the expected film. But it is useful for its ideas, for performances, for a dialogue defining a decade of Republic and each part in beautiful manner. It is a sort of clash between two personalities of XX century Ceh history. A film about public image and personal life, about politic and its meanings, about errors , admiration and a duel , about truth, compromises, solutions, options, sentimental life and a book. Melancholic air. And the sound of words. A film about truth. Discovered in , precise manner, with precious value.Because, in essence, it represents a film about its public.
