27th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
Talking About Adultery
director: Bára Jíchová Tyson
original title: Talking About Adultery
country: Czech Republic, United States
running time: 72 min.
In open testimonies by husbands, wives, and lovers, this highly stylized introspective fi m presents different forms of marriage and searches for the meaning of this institution in our post-consumerist society. Through a visually dominant text conversation between the central couple R. and B., the viewer gradually begins to identify with the stories of anonymous heroes who balance fulfillment of love and sexuality in relationships, cope with their frustration, or describe the rediscovered value of marriage. Metaphors and collages reflect the filmmaker’s perspective, and ultimately a surprising twist of life connected to the filming.
“Infidelity is actually a boring topic, yet it can be quite telling about one.” B. Jíchová Tyson
