The Great Night
Directed by Petr Hátle / Czech Republic 2013 / 72 min
In the twilight of consumer democracy, priestesses of love come to life and wait for their customers. Prostitutes, sales clerks, warehouse workers, non-stop bars, dance clubs, musty flats. A subculture of insomnia that lives the eternal night. Unceasing dissatisfaction with one’s life and unfulfilled desires. The rhythm of the nocturnal life of consumption and rapid gain, soaked in amphetamine and cheep alcohol. Assembly-line production of gaming machines, tools for the consumption of human disorder and unhappiness. The lottery of prostitutes and nighttime wandering that defies angelic choirs of purity and modesty. Sonatas next to cheap hot dogs, shampoo, and the hopelessness of housing projects.
