Walking Too Fast Movie on EUFF

(This article expired 31.10.2013.)

The Czech Republic was represented by Walking Too Fast Movie on EU Film Festival 2012 in Toronto.

Czechoslovakia, 1982. The totalitarian regime seems interminable and imperishable. Antonín, a member of the secret police, uneasy, tyrannical, perhaps even psychopathic, is percolating with unvoiced anger and desperation. Bored with everything, he aims his demons at a seemingly clear but in fact unattainable target – a young woman named Klára. It is not love, not passion but a burning desire for the illusion of escape from the clutches of drabness and boredom. Antonín’s absurd attempt to win Klára over pits him against not only the regime’s traditional enemies but also his own people and the system itself. When he breaks the rules of the organization he serves, it is neither a civic gesture nor a political one. It is rebellion, purely personal and wholly savage.

EUFF took place from November 14 to November 27, 2012 at the Royal Cinema on 608 College Street in Toronto. A unique cultural collaboration of the EU Consulates and Cultural Institutes in Toronto featuring 30 films from 27 countries, with free admission to all films.
