A psychological drama of the illness of an individual and the illness of the society. A film immediately banned after its premiere for its apparent naturalism. In reality, however, a portrayal of distinctive village characters in a world unsullied by ideology, inspired by the photographs of Martin Martinček from Liptov. The will to live and overcome life’s hardships is moulded in Hanák’s vision into a celebration of authentic humanity.
