This quirky, ambling 2004 comedy—the feature debut of writer-director Borkur Gunnarsson—examines the shifting relationships among two young Prague couples and the people they encounter on a rocky vacation in the country. Caught in the romantic confusion are an ironic filmmaker, his increasingly dissatisfied girlfriend, her Icelandic ex-boyfriend (who also happens to be the filmmaker's producer), and the ex's naive, philosophically inclined teenage brother. Nothing new here, but the intelligently understated acting and the drily humorous contrast between the beautiful rural landscape and the characters' petty yet intense squabbles make the film fresh. In Czech with subtitles. 85 min.
