Journey to Rome Synopsis

Vašek learns that he is dying, so he steals a painting and goes to Rome to sell it – he needs money for a healer. Sitting on a train with a fake mustache on his face, he has no idea that he has, in fact, been sent on a spiritual quest of his life by a beautiful girl. His pursuers look as if they were transported from a 1970’s movie, yet his attention is constantly drawn to the other passengers, who pull him into their own stories with no mercy. Vašek slowly gets lost in a colorful chaos of other people’s destinies, opinions and his own dreams. In the end, his train will take some of them to hell, others to enlightenment or a bizarre epiphany. The film takes a humorous view on all the basic philosophical questions we have heard so many times but that we have yet to find the answers to.

A surreal, satirical ride of a movie with a kicking synth soundtrack. Those looking for tight, focused plotting best look elsewhere but for me this was messy in the best kind of way, carrying enough fun moments, philosophical intrigue and charmingly crafted imagery for several films. Tis recommended.
