Home Care (Domácí péce)


With director Slávek Horák in person

Presented by the Czech Center New York

Czech Republic/Slovakia. Dir. Slávek Horák. 2015, 92 mins. In Czech with English subtitles. With Alena Mihulová, Bolek Polívka, Tatiana Vilhelmová. Czech Republic’s submission for the Best Foreign Language Oscar was this slyly witty, poignant comedic drama. Alena Mihulová gives a radiant performance as Vlasta, a rural home care nurse who invariably puts the needs of her eccentric patients and ineffectual husband before her own well being. But after a life-changing revelation, Vlasta, the inveterate caregiver, finds that she herself may be in need of a little TLC. Wonderfully wise about matters of life and death, the debut film from Slávek Horák is a moving look at one woman‘s journey towards empowerment.
