Bear with us / Chata na prodej
A middle aged couple (Ivana Chýlková and David Vávra) decides to sell their beloved, but no longer visited, weekend house. Stricken with nostalgia, the matriarch decides to bring the whole reluctant family under its roof for one last time. What an opportunity for a harmonious get-together and for doing justice to those great memories! The family is composed of a grandfather, suffering from Alzheimer’s, a father who always boycotts this type of gathering, a son that is always drunk and who makes a hobby out of ironically commenting on the world around him, including the troubled relationship with his girlfriend. A grandmother who is a specialist on straightforward questions that make everyone else feel embarrassed, and an unsettled daughter and her boyfriend – a successful German businessman – who is actually the only one who is looking forward to the weekend as he has no idea what to expect.
This mix of personalities can take us into anything but a harmonious story. The tensions within the family are steadily growing. After a challenging night, they wake up in the morning to find Grandpa has disappeared. It is not clear whether there will be any sale taking place at all.
If you like light, striking, yet ironic comedies, do not miss out on this one!
