The main character of the film is Klára, whose marriage is falling apart. On the threshold of forty, she finds herself in a place she was never very sure of, in a world where she is once again looking for a partner. For example, David Švehlík gets in her way.
“I was looking forward to the filming, just like a few friends,” he said, adding that he accepted the offer for the role also because he could film with Jitka Rudolfová for the first time.
Jaroslav Plesl, who plays Jana Plodková’s husband, had a similar feeling. He also admitted that he has “one bedfellow” in the film and that he already tries to avoid these situations: “An actor has to look a certain way. I’m getting to the age where I’m not quite Apollo anymore. I’m already afraid of bed scenes.’
“It was fast, intense, with a smaller crew, so it was like a family shoot, I would say. In addition, I already knew most of the crew from the filming of the fairy tale The Watchmaker’s Apprentice. And then the work is much better when you already know who you will be spending time with,” Plodková herself characterized the work, saying that thanks to the fact that almost everyone knew each other, everything went smoothly.
