Štěpán Skalský, 1984

Film at Filmový přehled


The fate of two brothers set apart by their different temperaments but linked by their relationships to one woman was the basis for director Štěpán Skalský’s 1984 contemporary psychological story. The sporting prima donna Viktor decides to leave his bicycling career behind for the love of a student named Lenka. Meanwhile, his older brother Max, a sculptor, must completely rearrange his life following a serious injury to his arm… A confrontation between brothers who have different values enabled the director to construct a classic drama in which both men must take stock of their lives. The leads went to Vladimír Kratina (Max) and Ondřej Pavelka (Viktor) while Zora Jandová appeared as Lenka. Veteran actor Jan Schmid plays a clerk; he was frequently cast in the 1980s, even if mostly in such minor roles.
