The fifties are the distant past, and yet the injustices of the old regime still keep Vlasta awake at night. He doesn’t have many more years to live, but driven by his need for revenge he seeks out his old friend Tonda in order to realize his final wish: to find and kill a communist prosecutor. This unusual road movie, about two former political prisoners who fight for justice despite every obstacle, is the most recent joint effort by Martin Dušek and Ondřej Provazník, whose background in documentary film is reflected in the realistic depiction of the arduous journey taken by two decrepit men. At times poetic, at others absurdly humorous, the directors’ cinematic look at the past provides a portrait of the stubbornness of age. (Karlovy Vary IFF)
