Shark in the Head

FILM CLUB - WOMEN FILM DIRECTORS. Shark in the Head (Žralok v hlavě), directed by Maria Procházková, 2005, 75 min, in Czech with English subtitles.

In this bitter comedy about a lonely man in middle age the main character of the seemingly ordinary story is a fool and a freak. He lives in an apartment on the ground floor on one of Prague’s streets, where the rattling trams and the city hustle are far away. Few people walk down this street, and few cars drive through here. And despite all that, this man experiences unbelievable adventures every day. His window is either wide open, or he stands before the window on the pavement, smoking one cigarette after another, he piles up ever-scattered dustbins and he regularly checks their contents. He likes to chat with people, but hardly anyone wants to chat...

Cast: Oldřich Kaiser, Jana Pehrová-Krausová, Jiří Lábus, Vlasta Žehrová, Kristýna Leichtová, Petra Nesvačilová, Ludmila Šafářová, David Máj
