Tiger Theory

  • Directed by Radek Bajgar

Bajgar’s tragicomic road movie follows Jan (Jiří Bartoška), an ageing veterinary surgeon who believes himself a henpecked shadow of his former, untamed self. Things just have to change. The suicide of his father-in-law, who shared some of his same predicaments, becomes the tipping point for a man who doesn’t want his life sqandered. But how to extricate himself, and to once more hear, and respond to the call of the wild?
