This feature debut by Pavel Marek, the much acclaimed creator of surrealistic short films, is a bluntly comic description of a young man in crisis. After a short stay at a psychiatric hospital he throws away a burgeoning relationship with a mentally traumatized girl for no sane reason. The film overcame its own tame cinematographic treatment by eliciting a convincing portrayal of the pathology of 'lost energy' evinced by the Generation X protagonist.
