You Kiss Like a God

SUMMER ON THE ROOF - film screening on a rooftop of the Czech Center New York. Helena Altmanova is a likable high school French and literature teacher, whose healthy, light-hearted attitude has gained her popularity among teachers and students alike. However, her personal life has big surprises in store for her. Her extended family provides a wealth of opportunity for surprises. Life in the same apartment with her ex-husband, the successful writer Karel, problems with her widowed sister Kristyna, her son Adam’s marital troubles, and grandmother Alzbeta’s new-found love all keep Helena so busy that she doesn’t have time for her own life. Even so, one day she realizes what most of us realize when we’ve given up on our dreams. Helena meets Frantisek, a doctor with Emergency Services under tension-filled circumstances, and falls head over heels in love! This marks the beginning of a stormy, passion-filled story about breaking up and making up, in which the two love birds complicate relationships, whether on purpose or by mistake, with their partners and other family members.
