Love from Above

2002 / Czech Republic / 98min

Love from Above is the playful and humorous tale of Prokop and Magdalena's travels to see a solar eclipse. It is, at the same time, a poetic meditation on transportation between places and communication between people. Primarily, however, it is a portrait of two real people, Prokop Holoubek and Magdalena Hrubá (close friends of director Petr Marek), and their environment: the city and nature. The director doesn't capture their performances on film but rather their existence within the element of film. On their way to the eclipse they have many adventures and become wiser, and because Prokop is a bit of a scatterbrain they even find themselves in danger...
