Description

Brothers Grass Snake and Cobra live in a small Czech town not far from Prague. Coming from a dysfunctional family, they both feel unable to build up a life to be satisfied with. Grass, who is almost forty, unemployed and still without a girl, can't escape from the shadow of his druggie and troublemaking brother Cobra.

Things seem to change for Grass Snake when he gets the opportunity to be part of a promising business and starts a relationship with the waitress of a local pub. But when Cobra and his addictions show up, Grass is on the verge of losing everything he achieved. But this time he is determined to teach his brother a life lesson he will never forget: a lesson that turns into a nightmare.


Press

"A mordantly chaotic comedy about the thin line between unconditional love and loathing, Czech director Jan Prusinovsky’s third feature gains crackle from the casting of real-life brothers Matej and Krystof Hadek as hard-up siblings" - Variety
