TIFF 2013: ‘Honeymoon’ squanders an interesting premise

One of the Czech Republic’s most prolific directors working today, Jan Hrebejk is known as a master satirist, looking at the Czech Republic’s past and its influence on today’s Czech Republic. He has been praised in the past for being able to capture eloquently in his films what other Czechs are still grappling with today. Most of his films deal with the mark left upon contemporary Czech society by decades of Soviet rule. He has explored these themes with great success in several celebrated black comedies and even in his most widely known work, the seriocomic World War II film Divided Fall.
