Brno, Nov 6 (BD) – Much of the production took place in the city center of Brno.

A ceremonial preview of the film will take place on November 8th at Brno’s Kino Lucerna, and the long-awaited romantic comedy will be released in cinemas on November 11th.

The film by director Marta Ferencová and producer Adam Dvořák is a romantic comedy centered on absolutely ordinary stories close to our everyday life, but seasoned with a healthy dose of humor.

“These are five stories that are intertwined so that they all end on Christmas Day,” said producer and editor of the film Adam Dvořák. “They are all about love. Someone is looking for it, someone has lost it forever, someone will find it, someone has stopped believing in it, but will rediscover it… I think the viewer will appreciate each one of the stories. It will be the most romantic comedy of Christmas this year.”

“It’s a film exactly in the style of the British classic Love Actually, with a varied palette of emotions, character types and relationships,” said director Marta Ferencová.

The film was shot in the city center of Brno, featuring landmarks including Jakubské náměstí, Petrov Cathedral, Moravské náměstí, and the bookshop on Česká. The roof of the Brno Hotel Continental, for example, becomes the scene of one of the main characters falling from the roof.
