A lyrical monodrama by Josef Topol (1935–2015)
A small, dimly lit basement apartment, stale air, a paradise of cobwebs. Various items and objects are found in odd places, only to get lost in even stranger corners, just like the protagonist Magdalena. This is the eerie setting for the story of an ageing dancer who mainly lives off letters from her lover Robert and the hope she will one day move to America and start over. Marie Durnová excels as Magdalena.
