A family has decided to sell their lovely cottage as none of them has visited it for some time. Yet it holds so many nostalgic memories that the mother suggests they all spend one last day there before the sale takes place. During their (more or less voluntary) time together, certain issues between individual members of the family inevitably come out into the open. Four years after his debut Totally Talking, director Tomáš Pavlíček returns to Karlovy Vary with a deliberately paced comedy whose protagonists may remind the viewer of characters crafted by Jaroslav Papoušek. Bear with Us, the director’s second picture, takes an agreeably detached view of the Czech phenomenon of weekending in the country.
