Christ age, ladies

2004 / Czech Republic / 58min

A group of five former grammer school classmates were taking their leaving examinations yet during the time of real socialism. When they reached twenty years of age, the regime got changed and the following fifteen years has been precised during the whole time of documentary.

In the minimum of space, the director´s bedroom enabled to open the stories of four protagonists (the author was staying in the background), who created together a picture of the fate of the part of the young-woman generation, who turned the opportunities of political changes to their own self-fulfilment.

The natural documentation of momentary reactions during the meeting is interspersed with the portraits of their friends, who are resuming, in a director ´s commented nutshell, the current shooting-film material. Love and its variants remain the essential motives of the documentary.
