Interview with Vit Janecek the producer of “The Unbalanced”, interviewer Dhanushka Gunathilake
“There are images in the film that express symbolically some inner states of the characters” - Vit Janecek
After a painful divorce, 50-year-old Nadia finally finds a good flat for a reasonable price for her and her daughter. She soon discovers that her close neighbour is mentally ill Valika who terrorises everyone around her. Nadia’s natural sense of togetherness leads her to help Valika’s situation, but she only becomes an object of her attention in her madness.
“The Unbalanced” creates a string of absurd encounters with increasingly menacing effects, but it is – at its core – a fantastically precise film about humanism, its consequences, its possible limits.
