(Rodina je základ státu) Director: Robert Sedláček, CZ, 2011, Czech version, 106 min

Thirty-year-old Libor is the father of two children, a former teacher, now a senior bank executive whose company went bankrupt because fraud by the managers was uncovered. The investigators offer to plea bargain in exchange for Libor's coope¬ration, and also suggest what all they know about him. Apparently there is plenty for a prison sentence. Libor takes time to reflect and convinces his wife to go away for a few days. Is he fleeing from justice, or does he merely want to delay the moment of truth, when he tells his wife he will have to go to jail? Or is there something else going on entirely? This intimate road movie set against the backdrop of the current economic crisis is an original variation on the age-old theme of intrigue in partnerships and family relationships. It is a movie about having to claim responsibility for our actions. A film about what can be sacrificed in the public sphere to ensure privacy in one's personal life. It is a movie in which tens of thousands of contemporary thirty-somethings and forty-somethings can see themselves.
