Description:
An iconic Czech New Wave movie replete with absurd humour, this family comedy film gives scrupulous attention to detail in realistically portraying the lives of three generations.

Spouses Ludva and Heduš Homolka live with their twin boys and Ludva's parents in a Prague apartment. On a Sunday, they all set out on a trip to the countryside to enjoy healthy air. The extended family includes a domineering grandfather, a caring but uncompromising Grandma, dork Ludva, dissatisfied Heduš and inquisitive twins. The whole day is full of petty disputes and hair-splitting arguments.

"Here is the bourgeoisie in a grotesque tragicomedy of characters and situations which are ultimately irresistible." (Jaroslav Papoušek)
