Top cyclist Roman is a training maniac who is working overtime to recover from a cycling injury, while his health-nut wife Charlotte wants a child and is keeping meticulous track of her fertility calendar. Two characters in one apartment, till death do them part. But, as any athlete surely knows, it takes intense commitment and sacrifice to reach and maintain peak form.
After his popular and critically acclaimed Czech internet miniseries Semestr, the director Adam Sedlák comes out with an uncompromisingly minimalist feature debut in the form of a claustrophobic anti-romance. "True to its own aesthetic, Domestique is a stunner, the work of a perfectionist with a promising career ahead of him." –Variety
