Home Care Domácí Péče

Slávek Horák / 2015 / 92 min / Czech

IMDb Official website

The DVD of the film is available in our Bookshop. (List of available DVDs in Slovene only)

Adopting a typically Czech perspective, an easygoing, amusing, yet totally honest style, Slávek Horák addresses the most difficult of human issues.

Dedicated home-care nurse Vlasta lives for her husband, her daughter and her patients. This abstemious woman who radiates joy begins each day with a drop of plum brandy, and not even the whims of her clients can wipe that sweet smile off her face. One ordinary day ends differently from all the others, however, and not only Vlasta but everyone around her is going to have to get used to the fact that she’s the one who’s going to need looking after.

"I was thinking a lot about what theme would be worthy of my feature debut. I retreated into seclusion and headed to my parents’ place in the countryside to get some peace and quiet while writing, but my talkative mother kept disturbing me with her never-ending, bizarre stories from work. She was working as a nurse, doing home care, and one meets an array of interesting people there. You see it now, but it took me a while to realise that the best idea was right there in front of me my whole life – in the character of my mother." (Slávek Horák)
