To the Woods is a sequel to Vorel's successful Out of the City (2000). Having abandoned city life long ago, the Marak's live in a quaint cottage on the outskirts of a small rural village. Honza earns a very modest living as a forest laborer, while his wife Marketa works as a masseuse and alternative healer. Anyna, their nymph-like, pubescent daughter, explores the verdant landscape by night, communicating with the stags that still make the endangered woodland their home. It is in these wanderings that Anyna makes the acquaintance of locally born-and-bred forest ranger and hunter, Ludva. Meanwhile her parents are persecuted by local authorities, with her mother being taken into custody for her popular magic mushroom séance. As their financial situation becomes increasingly dire, a solution emerges following an unexpected life change.

What unfolds against the backdrop of the story of Klára Knabelová (Viktorie Cermáková) and her relationships with three Austro-Hungarian Army officers is a parable of the collapse of the old world of traditional values and the start of the proliferation of new (dis)orders. World War I becomes a trigger for this process of disintegration and an incubator for mysterious, irrational forces. The only person who can emerge from this melting-pot with a clean slate is a strong and charismatic woman who becomes a symbol of composure, as well as the promise of "new tomorrows."

A flood in Prague has damaged Marcela and Jarda's home. He behaves boorishly over their son's asthma so she threatens divorce and takes the kids to her mom's, a possessive woman whose husband is a creep. While Marcela is there, Jarda is jailed for possession of a stolen car (he's a mechanic who's turned his garage into a chop shop). Benes, the urbane man whose car it is, befriends Marcela, and soon she has options. Jarda's mother and her mother push her in opposite directions. Jarda has animal magnetism, Benes offers security, and her own body and mind may be at cross purposes. The Cold War is over, Czechs are free to behave well or badly. What's best?

Can one justify trying escape from the realities of time, place, and human responsibility? This tale of two generations investigates the possibilities. Rufus (Jirí Schmitzer) and Churchill (Zdenek Novák) live through the seasons together, experiencing hope and desperation along the way. In a world limited by totalitarianism, they have chosen to live as outsiders, their decision blessed by humility and the courage of defiance. In spite of the fact that Churchill rejects commitments, his relationship with the fragile Gréta has produced a daughter. Rufus has a son by Katerina, and they try to lead a 'normal' life. The two fathers betroth their children to each other in the somewhat swaggering desire to confirm their own lifestyle. Young Gréta and Rufus grow up, and hope comes of their encounter years later - perhaps for themselves even if not for their parents. Perhaps for the viewer too.

Viktor Taus's debut came out of the filmmaker's own experience with drug addiction. The film convincingly retells the story of a Prague Film Academy student (whom Taus himself plays under his own name) who becomes heavily hooked and then attempts to make it back to normal life. Viktor's uncritical adulation of the cult of violent movies forms a significant subplot, though his admiration is gradually destroyed through conflict with the world of actual violence.

Vladimír Michálek chose an unconventional adaptation of Franz Kafka's novel for his feature debut. Artistically reminiscent of the classic films of Karel Zeman, the director reinterpreted this dark story of a man vainly seeking a place in a rigidly ordered society by changing the desperate conclusion into a happy end. The film provided Czech comedian Jirí Lábus with a new kind of role: that of the despotic uncle of a main hero Karel Rossman (Martin Dejdar).

Comedy about the people who inhabit a small town. For years the overbearing Pavek has endured Otik, the "town idiot," sharing his meals and the front seat of their dump truck. But Otik is such a sweet-natured fool that Pavek, exasperated as he becomes, always relents on his threats to find another partner. This Laurel and Hardy-like pair are at the heart of a comedy which finds humor in an abundance of everyday situations. The town doctor regularly wrecks his car because he's admiring the scenery, a romantic teenager develops a hopeless crush on his sister's schoolteacher, and an adulterous housewife and her boyfriend are just one step ahead of her suspicious, hot-headed husband.

Maryska (Magda Vásáryová) looks ethereal but loves meat and beer, while Francin is an ascetic. The strict members of the brewery board of directors come to audit the accounts, but are diverted from concentrating on Francin's detailed reports by Maryska, who has organized a pig-killing feast and is ably assisting the butcher. When she invites the old curmudgeons on the board to enjoy the fresh pork, they are too happy to agree. Francin doesn't know whether he is going to get a permanent contract. To make things worse his brother Pepin (Jaromír Hanzlík) - eccentric, noisy and garrulous - turns up on an indefinite visit.

It is the spring of 1945 and the end of the war is approaching. The twelve-year-old Milda Mráz, the son of a poor cobbler Mráz from Neprejov, still believes a little in miracles. That is why he drags everywhere his white she-goat Bruna which may one day change into a long-desired white horse. Even the promise of the miserly neighbor Petrus that after the war he will arrange a banquet for all the people stands for the evidence of the existence of miracles. Pavel Mácha, who escaped some time ago from forced labor in Nazi Germany, ends hiding and, what is more, his love Vlasta is with child. The villagers, encouraged by news of Prague uprising, are building the triumphal arch to welcome the Red Army. But Pavel is brought home dead in a hay-wagon, after he and other youths wanted to capture arms.
