And Then There Was Love...

And Then There Was Love...

Directed by Šimon Holý • 2022 • Czechia

One of the most striking new voices in Czech cinema, Šimon Holý returns with a touchingly comic take on female connection. Desperate for a way out of her loneliness, 60-something Kristýna (Pavla Tomicová) sets out for the Vysočina mountains to visit a fortune teller with her sceptical daughter Sára (Sára Venclovská) in tow. As the pair delve deeper into the world of esoterica, their bond is challenged and rejuvenated. Holý’s collaborative directorial approach, with scenes improvised by the cast, creates space for a refreshingly open-minded vision of modern womanhood to emerge.
