Behold Homolka

SUMMER ON THE ROOF - Film screening on the rooftop of the Czech Center. Ludva HomSolka and his wife Hedus live with their twin boys and Ludva's parents in a Prague flat. On Sunday, they all together set off on a trip to the countryside to enjoy healthy air. Sovereign grandfather, caring yet uncompromising grandma, somewhat dissatisfied Ludva and his wife Heduš and curious twins yet can not enjoy. The whole day is a load of petty disputes and arguments. Ecce Homo Homolka is an ironic comedy that has a strong satirical-critical subtext. The Homolka family makes you laugh and shiver at one time.
