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. I won’t get into any details. There were quite a few moments in this movie, which were astonishing in the way they portrayed reality out there. Reality which exists, but many are not ready to accept as fact.

Description: After failing in school and fighting with his father, 16-year-old Marek (Mirek Caslavka) flees his village for Prague, where he's attacked at the train station. Offered work, he's taken to an apartment, drugged, and introduced into the world of male hustlers. Teaming with David (David Svec, the film's co-scripter), they parlay their situation into a partnership with their boss, saving money and making plans to exit the city. Shown at Montreal's 1997 World Film Festival. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi Summary taken from: [Link removed - login to see] ... (more)

"Directed by Wiktor Grodecki An 'uncomfortable' and otherwise ugly-yet-necessary graphic dramatization of the perverse traps and dangers awaiting naive youths, sucked into Prague's seedy underbelly of underage male prostitution. "

“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.

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.

There is emptiness in the heart of the boy, caused by the absence of his mother. I did not get if she died or just left” read more
