Kráva (The Cow)

Edition 1994
86' - 1994 - Drama - Dialogue: Czech
Director: Karel Kachyna Composer: Petr Hapka With: Radek Holub, Alena Mihulová, Valérie Zawadská
A television film about the adventure that accompanies the seemingly most ordinary of Jives. The story of young Adam, an oddity, unravels at the beginning of this century in a lonely settlement in the mountains. Adam is the son of an unmarried mother, a woman of bad repute. All his life he is fighting his harsh fate. The balladic drama culminates in the basic questions about the meaning of human existence, its dependence on nature, on love, the resistance and -will of a human being to live out a life that seems to have no sense.
