When the army occupies the village, the rebels are forced to flee and leave their ammunition behind. Making the most of the fact that he looks like an inoffensive violinist, Plutarco has a plan: to recover the munitions hidden in his cornfield. His music enraptures the captain, but he still has to get his hands on the ammunition

Something like happiness by Bohdan Sláma( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in Czech and held by 396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Monika, Tonik and Dasha grew up together in the same housing project on the outskirts of a small industrial city. Now the childhood friends are adults, each struggling with feelings of desire and loneliness, longing and failure. Though none would admit it, each craves something the other has and it's these unspoken longings which bind them in difficult, complex, passionate friendships.. Vibrant and deeply affecting, SOMETHING LIKE HAPPINESS is a funny, tender and very human drama of passions and lives half-understood and veering out of control, shadowed by tragedy, shot through with hope.. Official Selection at the Toronto International Film Festival. Winner of 8 Czech Lion awards, including Best Film, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Cinematography, Best Actress (Tatiana Vilhelmova), and Best Actor (Pavel Liska). "A richly observed, nicely nuanced portrait of lives in transition."--Michael Rechtshaffen, The Hollywood Reporter. "Beautiful SOMETHING finds joy, and humanity, in a wasteland ... It's the comic, touching glimpses into a society run aground that make SOMETHING LIKE HAPPINESS special and link it with the gentle fables of the Czech New Wave films of the 1960s. The camerawork by Divis Marek caresses the clutter as if it were made of diamonds." - Ty Burr, The Boston Globe

Clinging to the image of her dead husband and living in her memories, Madalena is awakened by the arrival of Rita, a young photographer who is arriving in the ghost village of Jotuomba, where time seems to have stopped.
