La Bollshe Vita!

“August 21st 1968 – a young couple is breaking up on the background of the first day of Czechoslovakia´s occupation.“

A relationship of two young people paraphrases the “relationship“ of ČSSR and SSSR during the Soviet occupation. Patricie as ČSSR desires freedom which Michal as SSSR does not want to give her.

MICHAL – 28 years, Russian origin, he despises Patricia because of her freedom; his colour typology is RED – authoritative, impulsive, need to command the others.

PATRICIE – 28 years, Czech origin, open minded young woman; her colour typology is BLUE – calm, systematic, introverted.

The film is inspired by author´s perception of the current young “generation X“ that is not able to make use of their freedom and it sinks into everyday-no-future existance. La Bollshevita tries to reremind the real meaning of individual and also national freedom by its dramatic picture of lost generation from the beggining of occupation period.

The author references to the New wave from the end of 50-60´s. The inspiraton comes from the films of Jean Luc Godard A Bout de souffle and Le Mépris; of Miloš Forman – Blac Peter and Loves of a Blonde; of Jan Špáta Největší přání.
