A study of alcoholism with an excellent performance by Gustaw Holoubek as Kuba, a man who helplessly tries to battle his addiction before ultimately giving up and committing suicide. The action is limited to a single day.

Time is your enemy, time that has to be spent without vodka when waiting for the rehab. Has’s first feature is as heavy as it gets. These 100 minutes don’t fly, they crawl like dying snails both for the viewer and for Kuba, the protagonist with a little hope but too much time. I’d say that the form reflects the content here. Watch it hungover if you dare (I didn’t).
