Anna is puzzled by lethargic Irma (Katerina Winterova), who sits around moping about the latest of many bust-ups, and by permanently stoned Speedy (Jan Cechticky), but she takes an immediate liking to his sensitive brother Filip (Jan P. Muchow). She fails to catch on until much later, however, that Filip has a relationship going with his moody roommate Kytka (Martin Mysicka), who turns tricks at night with middle-aged men.
The story ambles along agreeably enough with little in the way of concrete incident other than its easy study of kids coping with love, friendship and their first tastes of adult commitment. Things change when a night of abandon at a disco prompts Filip to cross over and sample Anna’s affections. Kytka’s jealous rage drives him to attempt murder and suicide before ending up institutionalized, while the newly formed couple (following through on a recurrent space motif) ride off into the galaxy in a flying saucer. Hello!?
Production values are bright and colorful, and Ondricek’s background in musicvideos is evident in occasional stylized touches such as twinkling night skies or the B&W, warped-sound dog’s-eye-view images of the group as seen by Speedy’s outsize pooch.
