Shark in the Head

The sublime Czech actor Oldrich Kaiser (Dark Blue World) stars as a scruffy, middle-aged eccentric who, clad only in undershirt and boxer shorts, greets everyone who passes by his street-level flat in Prague. Like Don Quixote, he's a romantic with a tenuous grasp on reality, though his Dulcinea is a respectable and unusually compassionate bourgeois matron (Jana Krausova). Director Maria Prochazkova, making her feature debut, draws on her animation background for this 2005 portrait of a man overwhelmed by the beauty and terror of mundane life. In Czech with subtitles. 70 min.
