Story of a small boy is forced to move out of Prague during World War 2 to a small village of Slavonice where he meets the rest of his family. He needs to make new friends and get used to a new life which is immensely different from what this city boy was used to. Evocative cinematography by Vladimír Smutný and music from Michal Novinski contribute to this unique and heartfelt piece of nostalgia, the best film from Jan and Zdeněk since Kolja. This is first-rate production in every regard, and one of the finest Czech films in years.
