BAD ROMANCE

Prague

Wednesday 14. 2. 2024 | 20 : 30 | BIO OKO, Františka Křížka 460/15, Prague (map)

The love history of many of us is made up of comical, unbelievable, endearing or endlessly embarrassing scenes. But everyone imagines the worst date or the most romantic love differently. Someone looks for it by numbers, another in unusual places, another wants to give up love in life completely. iShorts invites you to a Valentine's Day with a selection of short films to devour, whatever love means to you.

The dress is too lavish and the toilet cubicle too small for the bride to fit in. The ballroom is jam-packed and the mood is alarmingly good. Something is about to burst: the groom's delusion of grandeur? The pregnant belly of deaf Betti? Her step-father's patience? Or the wine-filled bladder of his ex-wife?

Total length of the screening 100 min. In original language with Czech and English subtitles.
