Hillarious Tragiccomedy!!! I fall in Love with Czech Humour!!! Such Charming Story & Characters!!! And the Ballon Run reminds of the one in Quax, der Bruchpilot!!! Excellent Acting, Cinematography & Soundtrack!!!
Leffan nimi suomeksi on "ElÃ¤mÃ¤ kierrÃ¤ttÃ¤Ã¤." Ihanan sympaattinen ja huumoristinen elokuva kokonaisuutena. ViimeisestÃ¤ kuvasta meni kyllÃ¤ fiilikset alas. Olisin toivonut toisenlaista loppuratkaisua.
From the director of "Kolya", "Empties" is a delicate and beautiful comedy from the Czech Rep that succeeds to capture the dignity and humanity of old age, striping down the useless parts of it and preserving what makes life go ahead.
Great, subtle Czech humour and oh, so realistic. In the most humorous moments it reminds you so much of your own flaws and you recognize people around you. It is quite refreshing to watch a proper Eastern European sense of life and humour.
It is a disarming, unpretentious, and charming little film about an elderly teacher who suddenly resigns his job, yet who needs daily contact with the world at an uncomplicated level. He understands people and quietly helps them. He even manages to reignite love in a boring marriage.
"Vratne lahve" is the last film from the workshop of the family team Sverak father and Sverak son. While making the film the two of the Sveraks had to go through tough fights, but at the end the result depicts the fall of life in a true and funny way. They did a perfect job and the film is definetelly worth watching. If not now then maybe later when you have some experience with aging :)
