This documentary about Jiří Menzel offers a sincere and unobtrusive tribute to his mastery as a film and stage director. Czech-Swiss filmmaker Robert Kolinsky prepared the groundwork for his picture over the space of several years, during which time he acquired testimonies from eminent European figures, who ponder Menzel’s specific type of humour and its deeper significance. The chief take on the given theme is, however, the protagonist’s own.

Young Oksana put Denis in a baby box when he was an infant. Sixteen years later she steals him away from a children’s home, intent on making amends for her neglect. Denis, however, has no idea of the heavy price to be paid for his mother’s favour: the fragile boy has one unusual quality which Oksana has no qualms about exploiting.
