Often dubbed “The First Lady of Slovak Theatre”, Emília Vášáryová is mesmerising in Marko Škop’s latest feature, a FIPRESCI prize-winner at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Eva Nová is a recovered alcoholic; decades ago, she was a major movie star. While she would love to be given a film role again – an unlikely event, after all the bridges she has burnt in the industry, although it’s not for want of still trying – she wishes even more to be reconciled with the one she hurt the most – her son.
A star of last year’s CaSFFA favourites When the Cat Comes and The Jester’s Tale, as well as Dragon’s Return, which is also screening this year, Emília Vášáryová throws her all into the unglamorous characterisation of Eva, even down to the inclusion of memorabilia from her own stellar career.
