Leave me alone!

Ota Koval, 1978



As an actor, Filip Renč made his debut at the age of just four, in the 1969-1978 Czech television series Pan Tau (Tau). He grew to become a popular, talented child actor. In Ota Koval’s 1978 drama Nechci nic slyšet (Leave me alone!), the future film director plays 11-year-old Marek who loses his parents in a car accident. Despite the efforts of specialists and his new foster family, Marek cannot cope with the trauma and refuses to speak. New hope that he might be helped is kindled with the arrival on the scene of three members of a travelling student theatre troupe. One of them, a girl named Mimka, decides to assist the boy in returning to normal life. Dagmar Bláhová, who plays the part of the helpful student, is well known for her performances at the Brno theatre Na provázku, as well as for a number of films, most notably Věra Chytilová’s Hra o jablko (Apple Game, 1976). Jana Brejchová stars as Marek’s adoptive mother.
