Flower Buds

It’s Christmas in a small industrial town and Hrdina’s family struggles to get by. Father makes matchstick models in bottles and is addicted to playing slot machines, while his hard working wife thinks he is saving money for a trip to the Amazon. Their daughter wants to leave but becomes pregnant; meanwhile the son, longing for pure love, buys himself a stripper for a girlfriend. Played out as a series of deadpan incidents, the films is an acute and darkly funny portrait of gradual family breakdown.
