Bored in Brno
23 March 2006 | by (Brno, Czech Republic/Washington DC) – See all my reviews

I would say that the title fits the film but since most of the film wasn't even shot in Brno (Hradec Kralove I believe) it doesn't live up to the second half of its name. The first half does. The theme of interconnected stories is common in Czech films, and not a bad one since this is a rather small country and what might be 6 degrees of separation in the US is more like 2 here, but the story is simply boring. The lack of colour in the film, expresses boredom. The funniest scenes are in the beginning, but once they get to Brno, boring. In that sense, the film lives up to its title. By the end of the film, I didn't really care about the characters. Life in Brno might be slow, but not as slow as this film (which was shot in Hradec Kralove)
