There’s no family film like Family Film. Taking this as the title of his work, Slovene director and FAMU graduate Olmo Omerzu offers an ironic take on the family idyll genre as his feature examines a well-situated Prague family from different angles. The departure of the parents on an exotic holiday is the catalyst for the events that follow. They take the dog with them, leaving their two teenage children behind, but they keep in touch regularly. Then, while the parents are sailing round the islands of Indonesia, they suddenly break off all communication.… The family in Family Film is thus reconstructed and redefined at various points, and its members find themselves changing roles. The very structure of this black-humoured drama is elusive, preventing the viewer from knowing precisely which motif to grasp or from whose perspective the story will develop – and that perspective might well be the dog’s. Without the classic disclosure of events, Family Film is essentially stating that the big and small things in life happen totally unexpectedly, and there is very little that we can actually influence ourselves.
