Ice Mother / Bába z ledu
Is it possible to break out of one’s routine and head into a new direction late in life? Sixty-year-old Hana is unexpectedly given the impulse to do just that when she meets her contemporary Broňa. He encourages her to take up physical conditioning, especially swimming. Hana’s grown-up sons have been brazenly abusing her generosity for years. They feel that their mother’s new friend could jeopardize their power position. The prospect of a new romance with a hardy nonconformist, who arrives at a family lunch with a hen friend called Adele, finally goads Hana into changing the established order. In his new tragicomedy, director Bohdan Sláma continues to examine familiar themes – broken family relationships, the quest for love and happiness, and the characters’ ability to transform their lives. Ice Mother received a best screenplay award at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York.
