Redemption Attempt of a TV Repairman Josef Lávicka in Nine Scenes

Audio Tracks 

Stage-managed and manipulative picture, which can be viewed as an ironic pendant to poetic films celebrating the common sense, view into a static existence of a village alcoholic trying to cope with a text from the parish priest - within the context of the Christian rhetoric, the reconstructed commonness of the main character loses its meaningless nature, and the Man, on his way to catharsis through a catholic teaching, boozes away to a higher symbolic order.
