1994

In this sci-fi drama, Olda suffers from a total lack of energy and falls into a coma. A natural healer tries to rejuvenate him. In doing so, he learns that Olda has an “alter ego” inside the TV that sucks the energy from Olda every time he tunes in. Can Olda resist watching TV and live a more fulfilling life in the real world, or will the television world take over? The film won a Czech Lion Award for Best Editing and was the most popular film in the Czech Republic in 1994.
