About heroin with love. “Choose life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family. Choose a fucking big television. Choose washing machines, cars, compact disc players, and electrical tin openers. Choose good health, low cholesterol, and dental insurance.… But why would I want to do a thing like that? I chose not to choose life. I chose something else. And the reasons? There are no reasons. Who needs reasons when you’ve got heroin?” Mark Renton (Ewan McGregor), hero of the cult novel by Irvin Welsh as well as its successful film version, is a junkie of his own free-will who, together with his “friends” Spud, Sick Boy, Tommy and sociopath Begbie, indulges in heroin. Their revolt against the values of mainstream society might be a bit weird and self-destructive, nevertheless, they enjoy it enough, without realizing its inevitable ends. However, Renton decides to give up heroin – yet, can “normal life” offer him the same excitement as a proper dose? This is the second feature film by Danny Boyle (also known for The Beach or Slumdog Millionaire) and the drug scene of Edinburgh in the 80s, struck by economic crises, is shown here with authentic rawness. This is, however, perfectly balanced by black humor and surrealistic emphasis. The film also features an unforgettable soundtrack, with all the brilliant stars of British guitar and electronic music of the early 90s (Blur, Primal Scream, New Order, Pulp). Moreover, the song Born Slippy. NUXX by Underworld became a manifesto of the whole generation.

The movie is based on a popular TV series Okresni prebor (County Championship). As the title promises, the movie features the legendary figure of a licensed coach – Josef Hnatek. And as this man starred in the series only as ashes spread on the pitch of the Houslice village, the filmmakers decided to give the audience his live version. That sets the story of the feature movie in this man’s life, spinning the dilemma of an all-life football addict. Well, football is more than life to him. The title role of this Houslice’s persona is played by Miroslav Krobot – a theater director, art director of the Prague Dejvicke divadlo and an occasional actor.

Johann Friedrich Struensee, town physician and doctor to the poor of Altona – then governed by the King of Denmark – accompanies his monarch in 1768 on the latter’s year-long trip around Europe. During the journey, he gains the trust of the psychologically unstable king and is made his personal physician. But Struensee wants more: together with Queen Caroline Mathilde, who falls in love with the handsome and assertive medic, he increasingly takes over state affairs. Committed to the grand ideas of European enlightenment, he implements freedom of the press and of expression, abolishes torture and serfdom, reforms the school system and curtails the privileges of the aristocracy. The aristocrats, however, fearing for their wealth and power, refuse to take this ‘blasphemous activity’ lying down. Eventually, the reformer ends up on trial. Based on actual historical events, Nikolaj Arcel creates a mixture of historical-political thriller, romance and tragedy. The drama of a man decades ahead of his time who seeks to implement the ideals of the French Revolution in Denmark before it even began is also an allegory about the conflict of progressive and reactionary forces.

In the early 1970s during the Cold War, the head of British Intelligence, Control, resigns after an operation in Budapest, Hungary goes badly wrong. It transpires that Control believed one of four senior figures in the service was in fact a Russian agent – a mole – and the Hungary operation was an attempt to identify which of them it was. Smiley had been forced into retirement by the departure of Control, but is asked by a senior government figure to investigate a story told to him by a rogue agent, Ricky Tarr, that there was a mole. Smiley considers that the failure of the Hungary operation and the continuing success of Operation Witchcraft (an apparent source of significant Soviet intelligence) confirms this, and takes up the task of finding him. Through the efforts of Peter Guillam, Smiley obtains information that eventually leads him to Jim Prideaux, the agent at the heart of the Hungary fiasco…

All its heroes will gather at the end of the film, however, nothing is decided… In the moment František moves to Helena, there begins the main theme of the film: Can a relation of two people who fell in love and who have one marriage behind themselves and know the difficulties of life survive the stress of everyday life? Will they not lose too soon the miracle that is called love? Ex-partners stayed alone. Karel who did in marriage all the time what he wanted finds out that he is missing something now.
No new relation will be spiced at least by the grain of the taste of “the forbidden fruit”. Karel isn’t excited that he lives alone and definitely doesn´t long to be revealed by any of his admirers… Bohunka, dominant at work as well as at home, busy and energetic woman who was used to have her husband by her side all the time finds out that the definitive leave of her partner is as a real trauma for her! And that is another strong theme: How to cope with a loss of the life partner? An answer to these questions is not sought only by our heroes but also a lot of the viewers who have a similar fate…
However, Bohunka definitely doesn´t want to be another one in the word of abandoned and lonely wives… Although Helena and František try to go out well, there is one problem. One is not a solitaire when he is 50 years old. Family relations that have been created for years are as circles that cannot be overcome only for the fact that there comes a chance to begin a new life. The first conflict can be seen very soon and it opens an expectation for Bohunka. But partners who fell in love and who are reasonable as František and Helena know that their quarrel was only a result of a rash reaction and the real problem consist in the fact that they are not used to each other, they were not actually alone together! And so František returns with a new drive and a new chance: This time it won´t be a trip to Paris, but a wonderful romantic holiday in exotic surroundings…
Both look forward to how beautiful experience await them and they by no means suspect that now they stand before a real test of their relation.
