With Martin E. Kyšperský, Agáta Červinková, Jan Strejcovský, Eliška Křenková
Eliška is a psychologist, Martin is a musician. They meet at a birthday party, and she invites him to perform at one of her lectures on mental disorders. They clearly hit it off right from the start. What begins as a romantic adventure against a backdrop of a slow-paced summer in the Moravian metropolis, Brno, turns into a story of an intense relationship.
Relying on spontaneous, unostentatious performances in the central roles from Eliška Křenková and the musician, Martin Kyšperský, this is a lyrical film about love and the possibilities and limits of knowing and understanding another person. Because – not unlike a song – this film evokes a certain ongoing mood and raises the perennial question of what can and cannot be put into words.
