EMPTIES is the last in a trilogy from director Jan Svěrák and his father, screenwriter/actor Zdeněk Svěrák. The trilogy began with the Academy Award-nominated ELEMENTARY SCHOOL, exploring childhood, continued into adulthood with the Academy Award-winning KOLYA, and now comes to completion with EMPTIES, a comic love story about a man facing old age. Joseph teaches literature in a secondary school in Prague. One day he is forced into retirement but he refuses to take it lying down. He finds work at the bottle-return counter in a supermarket and discovers a new community who begin to rely on him. Once more his life has meaning, but Joseph neglects his wife, who feels she’s losing him. EMPTIES is a funny, touching story of love in old age.
