Plus introduction and Q&A with screenwriter and director Zuzana Liová
Thursday 29 November, 6.30
Director: Zuzana Liová. Starring: Miroslav Krobot, Judit Bárdos, Tat´jana Medvecká, Marian Mitas. Slovakia/Czech Republic 2011. 97 mins. Czech with English subtitles.
Disowning his eldest daughter for marrying a man he disapproves of, irascible and stubborn Imrich starts building a house for his younger daughter Eva in the family garden, stealing the bricks from the older daughter’s unfinished house and forcing Eva to help.
Eva, about to graduate from high school, is set on escaping the small village and her overbearing father, skipping school to earn money for a dream life in England and even starting an affair with her new English teacher.
This is an impressive debut offering an intimate and humorous portrait of a generation gap made worse by a lack of money and prospects, and is built on excellent naturalistic performances.
