A Comedy For the Aged

A wry, bittersweet comedy in the great Czech tradition, Vladimir Michalek's Autumn Spring stars the great Vlastimil Brodsky (Closely Watched Trains, Jacob the Liar) as Fanda, an old man who refuses to grow up. Despite pleas from his exasperated wife Ermilie and son who want him to make some serious decisions about the future, he ignores their nagging and spends his days seeking amusement and adventure. Aided by his pal and former theatre colleague, Fanda keeps his acting skills sharpened by pretending to be a host of fascinating characters. One day he is a retired opera star in the market for an opulent country estate, next a ticket inspector on the subway. Although he bickers constantly with his wife, their bond is palpable - deep down, Emilie knows that at least it's never boring. But when Fanda fakes his own death, Emilie decides she's had enough and files for divorce. The couple soon realizes however, that instead of old age being a time to take on worries, perhaps it is time to shed them and live each day to the fullest.
