About the movie:

This movie tells the tale of two people, who have known each other for a very long time, who have lived together for a very long time and who have done so with the difficulties and complications this entails. "Empties" is a love-story of a very special kind, about very special people and very special moments in life. And by being funny as well it reinvents and revolutionises classical bitter-sweet Czech comedy.

The main actor Josef Tkaloun is an elderly teacher at a high school in Prague who cannot control his anger when his pupils misbehave in his poetry class. He quits his job and despite his wife urging him to retire becomes a cycle courier. After an inevitable accident, he still refuses to stay at home and takes job in the local supermarket. He works behind a counter, recycling empty beer bottles (empties). There he begins to flirt with the customers. His own flirtations almost get him into trouble with his wife, so he resolves to reignite the passion in his marriage by celebrating his wedding anniversary with a hot air balloon ride. The scary balloon ride ending in crash has a happy-end in revitalizing relationship with his wife Eliska.

This movie has been awarded several times in the Czech Republic in different categories: as most popular movie, best director and best script. It has received also several awards at international level, for example at Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, Audience Award at Lubljana International Film Festival or Gold Dolphin Award as Best Film at the Festroia International Film Festival.
