Vlastne Se Nic Nestalo Details


Moviemaker Evald Schorm, once described as "the conscience of the Czech New Wave," had been inactive for several years before completing his valedictory film Vlastne se Nic Nestalo. The title translates to Killing with Kindness, which pretty much says it all. The protagonist is a young woman burdened with a fiercely overprotective mother. This is an outgrowth of mom's guilt over a childhood accident which left her daughter somewhat disfigured. Ultimately, the daughter develops the strength to stand on her own two feet without her mom's smothering succor. Most of the cast members of Vlastne se Nic Nestalo had appeared in Schorm's first feature-length effort, Evald Schorm (1964). The director died at the age of 57 in 1988, the year before Vlastne se Nic Nestalo was distributed in the U.S. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
