HALF-LIFE
dir. Vlado Fischer
Slovakia, 2007, 105 minutes
English Subtitles

The tour de force HALF-LIFE, a black comedy reminiscent of Sam Mendes’s AMERICAN BEUTY, deals with the lives of 40somethings and their relationships to life, love, and marriage. The main character, Viktor, is a dashing playboy, and the film follows his romantic encounters with countless women, including his wife, a business partner and a friend’s daughter. Vlado Fischer’s film about mid-life crisis is both humourous and intelligently provocative.  English subtitles.
