Warm Comedy About Madness, Depression and Unfulfilled Dreams

Category: short
Director: Michal Duris
Country: Slovak Republic
Year: 2017
Length: 22'
Production Status: completed


Two adolescent sons and their parents. A family whose members know each other so well that their affection for one another often develops into an oppressive relationship. They all have their dreams but perhaps more important than fulfilling these aspirations is the fact that the others should recognise them as something worth striving for. Talented director Michal Duris confines characters into individual frames on screen, which is just as claustrophobic for the viewer as their daily life is for the family. Yet, as the film's title suggests, we may certainly laugh at depression while madness might make a good subject for a warm comedy.
