More than twenty years after shooting Squandered Sunday (1969) documentary filmmaker Drahomíra Vihanová made her second feature. This allegory involves a man socially marginalized for his unwillingness to fit in. He ends up in an unknown region where he gradually learns the truth of the way things operate, but because he refuses to keep his mouth shut he becomes an inconvenience. With its exemplary story, Kafkaesque atmosphere, black-and-white photography, the film is reminiscent of Czech writer-director films of the 1960s.
