Bread and Milk (Kruh in mleko)
Description: Jan Cvitkovic makes his directorial debut with this drama about fate, substance abuse, and human frailty. As a result of a strike by medical employees, Ivan is released one day early from his alcohol detox program, returning home to his loving, cheerful wife, Sonja, who tries to guide him back to normal life. The following morning, Sonja leaves for work as a housekeeper to a wealthy family, asking her husband to go and fetch some milk and bread at the local store. On the way, he runs into Armando, his junior high school chum who he has not seen in years. While chatting in a local pub, Armando confesses to Ivan that he had a fling with Sonja just before Ivan married her. Rattled by the admission, Ivan inadvertently slugs down a glass of brandy, effectively falling off the wagon. This relapse strains the already tense relationship between Ivan and his teenaged son, Robi. This film was screened at the 2001 Toronto Film Festival.~ Jonathan Crow, All Movie Guide
