Blue Heaven (Modré z nebe)

Edition 1997

Middle-aged, divorced Marta makes her living tending to her small-scale pottery-making business, but most of her time is taken up raising her teenage daughter Alica and caring for her dotty, ageing mother. Marta is clearly going through an extreme mid-life crisis, which is not helped by Alica's wild trysts with her beau of the moment or by her mother's incorrigible zest for dressing up in theatrical garb from decades past and stomping about in life-threatening high heels. Over the course of the film, the three women interact, alternately loving and supporting one another and testing that affection by their tantrums, mood swings and unorthodox behaviour. When a family tragedy intrudes on their intergenerational homestead, the three women begin to understand the mutuality of their plight.
