Special Features


Editorial Reviews

Charming, strange and very talkative, Mr. Seman spends his days meeting and greeting the many people who pass by his ground floor apartment window. At different times he is a philosopher, preacher, or even therapist--influencing the individuals he stops while his placid demeanor conceals a darker reality. When he befriends a beautiful, young woman, life changes dramatically and the normally hidden side of his world begins to take over. Imaginative animation and expressive digital effects are used to convey one man's unique view of the world, unfolding into a stunning cinematic powerhouse that combines comedy and drama for a touching story about how we influence the people we meet while being profoundly affected ourselves by the colors they bring to our own lives.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
A man lives by himself in an apartment in Prague. His mother has died and he spends time attempting to immerse himself into reality, although he lives with a mental ailment (schizophrenia) that skews his view of reality. He sees people on the streets and interacts with them on the level of a nine-year-old child. He is extremely friendly, and attempts to make those he meets happy, which, in turn, makes him happy.

The movie is set in a 2 month period (it seems). It has a simple narrative: a man unable to cope with reality, but impacting those around him in surprising ways. Oldrich Kaiser, who plays the lead role, is absolutely brilliant (if you haven't seen any of his other Czech movies, you should!). It is not a long movie - about 85 minutes, but it is powerful: beautiful and funny, touching and sad.

I'd highly recommend it. It's not purely a Czech-centric movie. It's universal. It could be set in Chicago as much as it is Prague.
