Wrong Side Up (Příběhy obyčejného šílenství)
Directed by Petr Zelenka, 2005, 100 min
In Czech with English subtitles

Wrong Side Up (Příběhy obyčejného šílenství) is a 2005 Czech comedy-drama film. Written and directed by Petr Zelenka, it is an adaptation of his successful theater play Tales of Common Insanity . It is a tale of people showing their internal loneliness by their choices in life.

A former aircrew member (Petr) is no longer flying, but works in an aviation-related dead-end job, loading boxes at an air-cargo company. He spends his working hours dreaming of re-winning the hand of his former fianceé (Jana), who has moved on to another man whose prospects seem better. He spends his off hours surreptitiously observing a female neighbor.

His parents also face personal problems: his mother has involved herself in causes promoting world peace but ignores her collapsing family; his father is fighting a midlife crisis by trying to promote an extramarital affair with a colleague.
