Berlinale Special 2012: Series of Talks at the Haus der Berliner Festspiele

user
 For years, discussions with filmmakers directly after the screenings of their films have been a special attraction of the festival experience for many Berlinale visitors.

The Corpse must die

user
Director: Jozef Pasteka.
Story The main characters of this contemporary comedy are connected to each other by their profession and family ties. University professor and a translator of Dante, Kryštof Mitrovský, his wife of 20 years, Naďa, and her brother, twice-divorced university rector Alexander Pažický who can find a solution in any situation. Krištof is a believer in the Taoist passivity; he rejects his brother-in-law’s careerism and suffers from narcolepsy. However, in the presence of women he wakes up miraculously. Just like in a centaur, he struggles with the conflict between the head of a human and the body of a beast, between morality and human passion. “God, when will you bless me with impotence, it will end the suffering…” sighs Miro Noga playing the role of Krištof. The story starts with a scene of infidelity: Naďa catches her husband “consulting” with his student Silvia who suffers from nymphomania. Deeply upset, Naďa visits her lawyer friend and files for divorce. Later at a gas station, she runs into a man who insults her. Anger against the entire male race bursts forth and Naďa kicks the man with all her might in his butt. The man follows her home. Scared to death in the scary darkness of her building, Naďa hits the man and he falls to the ground, motionless. This unlucky incident starts a series of other unexpected events…

The 60th Berlinale--Retrospektively Speaking
