As in his most recent films, Pupendo and Up and Down, Czech director Jan Hrebejk's Beauty in Trouble looks at the impact of contemporary events on traditional Czech culture. In this latest offering, he deftly uses a romantic relationship between a beautiful young mother and an older, well-to-do Czech expatriate as a metaphor for moral upheaval and the allure of Western affluence in a post-Communist society. That he manages to do all of this in a completely entertaining and engrossing manner.
