In Czech New Wave master filmmaker Jirí Menzel’s latest film (and sixth adaptation of a Bohumil Hrabal novel), which was ten years in the making, the wryly cynical and comedic screenplay focuses on two parallel stories. The first follows the youthful exploits and gradual maturing of an ambitious little man before the War and during the German occupation. The second story, interlinked with the first, concerns a period in his later life when he seeks peace and solitude in an abandoned German village whose inhabitants were expelled after the war. The film features Ivan Barnov, Oldrich Kaiser, Julia Jentsch, Martin Huba. In Czech and German with English subtitles.
