Winter Flies
Director: Olmo Omerzu, Narrative, Czech Republic, 85 min.

On a bright, wintry day, cherubic and ingenuous Heduš catches doe-eyed friend Mára and his stolen car in his BB gun’s crosshairs. He spontaneously decides to accompany Mára on a journey without destination. Two curious teenagers barely old enough to see the reality that lies beyond their dashboard, they heedlessly take on the adventures that come their way, from rescuing a canine companion from drowning to picking up their instant teenage crush, hitchhiker Bara.

“But while “Winter Flies” might not tell us anything new, it relates its old story with a vivid specificity and a beguiling sense of mischief that makes it feel fresh.” -Jessica Kiang, Variety

“Winter Flies is a lovely little film that’s as comfortable as an old sweater and almost as warm.” -Boyd Van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter
