This movie seemed really harsh to me. I guess one of the reasons for that, is that the main character Marek, looks alike a person I used to know; someone I have lost actually.

Reality which exists, but many are not ready to accept as fact.

"Directed by Wiktor Grodecki A film that rightfully -as an aspiring father myself- should just about make every sincere parent's blood boil with disgust and outrage! An eyeopener to the parents of runaways, and the victims of random kidnappings. This is a rare '90s Czech film I came across a while back, seeming to expose the perverse underbelly of sadistic child prostitution in the streets of Prague. Directed by devoted expert, mostly documentarian, trading in his investigative skills for a stru"

Reality which exists, but many are not ready to accept as fact.

To me Marek is a normal teen-aged boy, who needs his own space. He is tired of hearing from people who think that they know what is best for him. Unfortunately he should have listened to his dad; a person, who surely loved him, though somehow the link between them was lost.
