So many films about families not getting along, parents dying aka midlife crisis and, a larger European theme the past few years, immigration or Eastern European characters taking temporary jobs in the West to make ends meet. Chytilová died in 2014, Němec in 2016, Herz in 2018, and Czech or Slovak artists possessed of their particular perspective, having both predated and outlived the Iron Curtain, so-called, cannot be replaced.

He begins to take his duty as liberator of trapped souls so seriously that he sees no reason to wait for people to die in the natural course of events before liberating them. His workshop is as well-ordered as his life, but nothing lasts forever. No-one cares about the ageing funeral shop owner anymore, except when she provides discounts on flowers and coffins.

The fest, which runs June 28-July 6, also unveiled films set for its East of the West, Documentary and Out of Competition sections.

Political schisms once thought left in the prior century are alive and well in Europe as at home, and while not caught up in the same outright turmoil the city of Karlovy Vary itself still bears the physical traces of the Czechoslovak Socialist Republic regime. At the Festival, films are screened in. Perhaps the most hopeful aspect of this film is that it exists — that this family, even in their darkest moments, had the wisdom to understand the value in telling their story; they opened up their lives to the rest of us in an unusually courageous way.

Capitol building but is a dangerous and decrepit part of the city that outsiders go to great lengths to avoid. Probably nothing to worry about, right? Jilted by their men and set adrift by larger historical ructions, the two are thrown together by circumstance and forced to live by their wits, becoming buccaneer entrepreneurs in the Wild East who, in the course of the madcap movie, gain and lose fortunes. What remains are their visions of excess, inundated with the obscenities of the system, whatever the system or regime of the moment might happen to be.
