Movie Info

Career criminal and imaginative writer René Pláil serves as the subject of documentary filmmaker Helena Tretíková's entry into the 2008 Karlovy Vary International Film Festival. A man who truly seems to have no luck in life, Pláil bounces between freedom and incarceration over the course of twenty years as Tretíková's camera captures his thoughts on such historical events as the Velvet Revolution, the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, and the Czech Republic's accession to the EU. Despite the fact that Pláil confesses that he often feels like a prostitute for selling his life story to the camera, the visits from Tretíková's film crew and the letters he exchanges with the director are often the only contact this hapless desperado has with the outside world while serving extended stints behind bars.
