Original title: Melouch
Druhé město, 2016
For several years, two long-standing friends and erstwhile fellow teachers have been making their livings in rather lucrative professions: one is a gigolo, the other a contract killer. Now they take off together for the Sázava river, for a few days’ rest from the demands of their work.
As everyone knows, however, men keep working even when on holiday … This is the outline of a screenplay whose author is hell-bent on attracting an apathetic film producer. Brutality or true love – which will prevail? Or why not have both?
This new short novel by Michal Viewegh is a thriller and tragic love story in one.
