LOVE IS LOVEHD
The romantic comedy “Love is Love,” from director Milan Cieslar, tells the story of Maruska (Aneta Krejèíková), a blind girl and student at the Conservatory of Music, who dreams of love and having a family, despite her blindness. Her dream guy has curly blonde hair and blue eyes, but she ends up falling in love with the dark eyed, swarthy Marek (Maciej Cymorek). Maruska lives with her overly protective grandfather (Peter Nárožný), whom is preocupied with Libuska (Elizabeth Balzerová), his long-lost love. Maruska’s neighbor and best friend is Honza (Peter Vancura), who is constantly struggling with his headstrong mother (Simon Stasova), as she refuses to accept that her son is gay. She blames everyone else - even her husband (Ondrej Vetchy) - for her son's "deviation." The fate of all the main characters is unexpectedly intertwined and told through humorous and touching situations laced with subtle irony and hyperbole.
Just as in life, which has funny situations and difficult tests, unexpected revelations, absurd decisions, surprising twists, along with love, suffering and reconciliation, all the characters will experience times when they behave blindly and forget to listen to their hearts. Maruska is the driving force behind this story where life is true and love is blind.
