2018 Oscar® Selection, Czech Republic
In the dead of winter, the naïve and energetic Heduš runs into his stoic pal Mára and convinces him to go on a road trip to nowhere in a stolen Audi. Told from an interrogation room where Mára is recounting their misadventures, this coming-of-age, comedic road movie sees two first-time actors knock it out of the park. Combining first loves, light drinking and even a thrilling dog rescue, this lively romp revels in irresponsibility and gentle mayhem with an energetic camera and a playful score. DIR Olmo Omerzu; SCR Petr Pýcha; PROD Jiri Konecny. Czech Republic/Slovenia/Poland/Slovakia/France, 2018, color, 85 min. In Czech with English subtitles. NOT RATED
