Otakar Fuka, 1983



In the 1980s, actor Milan Lasica played a number of intriguing film roles. Among them was the part of Pavel Šťastný, a senior lecturer in philosophy who seeks to correlate his field of study – ethics – with his daily life. However, Štastný´s comfortable existence is disrupted by his daughter from a previous marriage – Eva. Despite her lack of ability, the girl wants to study medicine and hopes that her father in Prague will be able to offer both accommodation and an easy way in... Eva soon becomes caught up in the machinery of favours and counter-favours that will eventually ruin her life. The hero of Samorost (An Original, 1983), initially a confident and honourable man, is gradually transformed into an outlaw who betrays the ideals he proclaims and even basic human decency. This comic morality tale was based on a screenplay developed by director Otakar Fuka in cooperation with the story’s author Jiří Blažek. The role of Eva was a great opportunity for emerging actress Veronika Žilková.
