Work, friends, home. What constitutes mind-numbing routine for some people is, for 26-year-old Petr, an opportunity to contemplate the everyday life around him. In Václav Hrzina’s film this young man will perhaps never say what he really wants but, occasionally, in the silence, you can hear what he’s thinking.

Punk devotee Enn would love to find a girl. And maybe he has after meeting the ethereal Zan (Elle Fanning), who considers punk to be “from another colony,” which isn’t the only indication that the pair hail from different planets... Based on the story of the same name by Neil Gaiman, John Cameron Mitchell’s intergalactic fusion of romcom and musical even sees Nicole Kidman passing as a rebel.

This inventive road movie about a son and father finding their way to one another has none of the sentiment normally associated with this kind of subject matter. The film introduces an ensemble of wild characters from the lowest social strata, viewed through a lens that finds a balance between the work’s profoundly human dimension and its stylishly ironic commentary on contemporary society.
