The House: Gala Screening with director Zuzana Liová

29 NOVEMBER AT 6.30 PM, THE GATE CINEMA, 87 NOTTING HILL GATE, LONDON W11 3JZ. Disowning his eldest daughter who married too young a man he disapproves of, irascible and stubborn Imrich commences single-handedly building a house for his younger daughter Eva in the family garden, stealing the bricks from the older daughter’s unfinished house and forcing Eva to help. Eva, about to graduate from high school, is set on escaping the small village and her overbearing father, skipping school to earn money for a dream life in England and even starting an affair with her new English teacher.

An impressive debut offering an intimate and humorous portrait of generational clash strained by a lack of money and prospects, built on excellent naturalistic performances.
