Czech That Film - Schmitke

The story of the inner world of an aging, clumsy man who is unable to participate in the world around him. Czech Lion winner. Director: Štěpán Altrichter, 2014, 94 mins.

 

Directors note:

The film is based on a short story by the writer and screenwriter Tomáš Končinský entitled “Julius Schmitke slipped through death’s fingers like an awkward seal”, which immediately captured my interest. It is a story set somewhere between comedy and mystery, somewhere in the fog of the Ore Mountains, full of the atmosphere of this mysterious stretch of land, its history and its people. But first of all it's the story of the inner world of an aging, clumsy man who is unable to participate in the world around him. He shows us a feeling that we all know in today’s ultra-fast virtual world. It's a journey into the mind of an unfortunate man, which makes us feel what we don't allow ourselves to feel that much anymore.
