Drama
Petr, the shy, bespectacled science teacher (actor Pavel Liska) newly assigned to the local high school, arrives in the Czech village with a guilty secret and barely controllable urges — both related to his fondness for his teenage boy students. Farm widow Marie (Zuzana Bydzovská) is attracted to Petr and tries to help him, even though he's more interested in her son. Writer-director Bohdan Sláma gives this delicate situation an Eastern European comic tilt without diminishing either Petr's or Marie's anguished loneliness, and the character parts are as well drawn as the leads. Worth a look as it breaks free from the festival circuit (103 min.).
