The House at the BFI London Film Festival

The BFI London Film Festival presents a new film by Slovak director Zuzana Liova. The House is a realist tale of generational conflict, set in a remote Slovak village. Contemporary drama remarkable for its depth of characterization.


Director / Screenplay: Zuzana Liova
Cast: Miroslav Krobot, Tatjana Medvecka, Judit Bardos, Marian Mitas
Slovakia-Czech Republic 2011, 97min

Ambitious teenager Eva is about to leave school, and anxious to move away from her provincial life to England and experience the wider world. At the same time, her inexpressive father Imrich is relentlessly completing the building of a house for her on the family property. This is, in effect, a continuation of a project in which he began to build a house for his older daughter Jana, who he threw out when she became pregnant. But Eva also begins to rebel against her father. Zuzana Liova’s feature, which won several screenplay prizes, including the Kieslowski Award, carries the sensitivity and observation of her script forward to an equally sensitive visual realisation. A ‘small’ film concentrating on the intricacies of family relations, it provides an impressive portrait of generational conflict in which each gesture achieves resonance and the consequences of actions proceed with seeming inevitability.
