Directed by Petr Zelenka
Czech Republic, 1997
Comedy, Drama, Anthology


This Czech anthology film has six episodes linked by a radio show and a common theme of chance, coincidence, and fate. Twist of fate and the twists of mind of the characters (mostly couples) combine in just the right twinkled absurd way in the interweaving episodes of this comedy.

This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
