Something like Happiness - DVD release

Set in a rundown industrial area of Northern Bohemia, where nature is tainted by the effects of acid rain, the film examines the intertwining stories of three families.


Monika works in a supermarket, lives with her parents in an apartment block, has a Czech boyfriend in the US and plans to emigrate. Toník lives in relative poverty with his aunt on the family's rundown farm. Daša also lives in the apartment block together with her two small children.


While no one laments the past, there appears to be precious little personal or economic satisfaction in the present. Yet Monika and Tonik, former childhood friends, are decent people and, when Daša suffers a breakdown and is confined to a psychiatric ward, they look after her children.



Directed by Bohdan Slama 

From the Czech Republic in Czech, with English subtitles.
