Something like happiness by Bohdan Sláma( Visual )

30 editions published between 2001 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 683 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Monika, Tonik and Dasha grew up together in the same housing project on the outskirts of a small industrial city. Now the childhood friends are adults, each struggling with feelings of desire and loneliness, longing and failure. Though none would admit it, each craves something the other has and it's these unspoken longings which bind them in difficult, complex, passionate friendships.. Vibrant and deeply affecting, SOMETHING LIKE HAPPINESS is a funny, tender and very human drama of passions and lives half-understood and veering out of control, shadowed by tragedy, shot through with hope.. Official Selection at the Toronto International Film Festival. Winner of 8 Czech Lion awards, including Best Film, Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Cinematography, Best Actress (Tatiana Vilhelmova), and Best Actor (Pavel Liska). "A richly observed, nicely nuanced portrait of lives in transition." – Michael Rechtshaffen, The Hollywood Reporter. "Beautiful SOMETHING finds joy, and humanity, in a wasteland...It's the comic, touching glimpses into a society run aground that make SOMETHING LIKE HAPPINESS special and link it with the gentle fables of the Czech New Wave films of the 1960s. The camerawork by Divis Marek caresses the clutter as if it were made of diamonds." - Ty Burr, The Boston Globe

Der junge Petr kehrt der Großstadt den Rücken, um auf dem Land eine Stelle als Dorflehrer anzunehmen. Im idyllisch gelegenen Dorf lernt er die junge Witwe Marie kennen, die zusammen mit ihrem 18jährigen Sohn einen Bauernhof bewirtschaftet. In den sonnenüberfluteten Feldern Böhmens entwickelt sich eine tiefe Freundschaft zwischen ihnen. Sie akzeptieren einander mit all ihren Zweifeln, Hoffnungen und ihrer Sehnsucht nach Liebe. Doch während Marie sich von dieser Freundschaft bald mehr erhofft, reagiert der Lehrer zurückhaltend. Seinen Schülern lehrt Petr, nur wer die Natur versteht, könne auch sich selbst verstehen. Doch als Petr eines Tages von einem Freund aus der Stadt besucht wird, ist schnell klar, dass er selbst sich weder seiner Natur noch seinen Gefühlen sicher ist. Mit Eifersüchteleien setzt Petrs Freund eine Reihe von Ereignissen in Gang, die die Leidensfähigkeit des Lehrers, wie auch die Maries und ihres Sohns bis zum Äußersten ausreizen. Petrs Unentschiedenheit, seine Zerrissenheit zwischen Vernunft und Verlangen, zwischen Geist und Natur stellen die Freundschaft zu Marie auf eine harte Probe
