Holiday Makers

SUMMER ON THE ROOF - Film screening on a rooftop of the Czech Center New York. A good-natured, light comedy that is based on the novel and the screenplay of one the most popular contemporary Czech writer Michal Viewegh. A disparate bunch of Czech vacationers are thrown together on a one-week package bus holiday to an Adriatic seaside resort. The strange ensemble of characters is led by a plain looking yet witty woman who is taking her ornery middle-aged parents on holiday. Also along for the trip are a minor pop star, a gay couple, a pair of teenage sexpots, a homophobic mom and dad and their two kids, and a sci-fi obsessed diving enthusiast who gets turned on by women swimming underwater. Entanglements, adventures, and misadventures multiply as couples are made, unmade, almost made, and then broken up. And yet, against all odds, the vacation proves transformative by the week's end.
