Description: The residents of a small town that exists only in the imagination find their lives reflecting the turmoil of the real world in this fantasy that bridges comedy and drama. A series of episodes follows the misadventures of people living in a village that never was and never will be somewhere in the former Czechoslovakia. A soldier (Csongor Kassay) discovers the local woman who seduced him (Vilma Cibulkova) has more on her mind than he imagined. A tramp (Jiri Pecha) caught stealing food finds that his St. Christopher medal comes in handy. As Germany and Russia battle for control of the nation, two children (Lukas Miscovic and Jukub Rada) watch their village caught in the crossfire. A goatherd (Ivan Martinka) eats a snake, with surprising results; a bully (Jan Kraus) falls victim to unexpected justice; and two women (Vera Galatikova and Viera Topinkova) in their twilight years look back with mixed emotions on their lives and their hometown. Krajinka received its North American premier at the 2000 Toronto Film Festival.~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
