Night Owls / Deti noci DVD
Children of the Night, directed by Oscar-nominated Michaela Pavlátová, is an intimate story of a girl, Ofka (Martha Issová), caught between childhood and adulthood. After finishing high school, Ofka works in a non-stop shop and grapples with life's uncertainties, leading a nocturnal existence. The film, set in the intriguing backdrop of Prague's Karlín, explores the stagnant comfort of childhood morphing into a suffocating trap. Ofka's life is a mosaic of fleeting encounters with regular and random customers, including her peculiar friend Ubr (Jiří Mádl), who obsessively collects discarded items and hopelessly loves her. She avoids Míra (Jan Dolanský), who has stopped loving her, realizing it's time to leave her childhood, step beyond her neighborhood, and take charge of her life. The film, recognized for its authenticity, features performances by Kristýna Nováková, Lenka Termerová, and others, with Issová and Mádl winning accolades at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival. Based on a screenplay by Irena Hejdová, which won the Sazka Prize at the Czech Lion Awards, this film is a delicate tale of fragile friendships, love, and hope.
