User Reviews

Certainly the best czech movie and overall one of the best movies ever made!!!
20 June 2004 | by (Vienna, Austria) – See all my reviews

As I visited Slovakia this winter and read a survey about that film I really had high expectations!

After walking into the theater the film was written and told in a bit different way as I thought before, because I thought it would be focused basically on the specific main characters, but it was split in many different characters, but it was even far beyond any expectations of mine I had before.

This movie was told so lovely and so naturally with a mix of a special taste of humor combined with a very sweet, overwhelming and romantic love-story which was so powerful you rarely find in any other Hollywood movie nowadays.

I recommend everyone to see it and I'm sure that many people will get dragged to watch it again and again and again.

It has everything, really everything a really good movie needs!

Superb acting, even in the supporting roles, an excellent script, a very special and pacing atmosphere, a special tension of romantic and erotic, a wonderful music and many really captivating songs. The music plays an important and inevitable part in the movie and of course the leading included love story between two mentally ill people is dramatic, funny and captivating at the same time.

Of course it's best to see it in the original czech version! possibly with titles otherwise the main atmosphere and special taste could get lost.

I highly recommend it to everyone! You won't be disappointed.

That's one of the very very few movies I will rate 10/10(if possible it would get 12/10 for the fascinating and really clever placing of the several relationship between people)

A true masterpiece that should never be missed!

That's not only a movie by itself, it's a present for mankind.
