Empties / Vratne lahve DVD
In the film, former teacher Josef Tkaloun decides to leave his teaching career behind but refuses to settle into the quiet life of a retiree sitting on a park bench. Full of energy, ideas, and masculine desires, he is determined not to age idly. Despite the disapproval of his wife Eliška, who sarcastically comments on all his activities, he takes a part-time job at a bottle redemption center in a small supermarket. This modest space becomes a unique microcosm, where bottles meet bottles and people meet people, filled with tragicomic fates. Tkaloun becomes not just an observer of this world; under his direction, situations often take on somewhat grotesque dimensions, showcasing his refusal to quietly fade into the background of old age. The film presents a vivid portrayal of a man's struggle to maintain his identity and purpose beyond retirement, blending humor with poignant observations on life and aging.
