Roming is a comical road movie about three Romas' journey from North Bohemia to Slovakia. Jura (Vítezslav Holub) is a modern, rational young man who is studying at university and doing well. When his father (Marián Labuda) asks him to go to Slovakia with him to meet his bride-to-be - from an agreement Jura's father made with his best friend when Jura was still a boy - Jura can't believe his ears. At first he rejects the ridiculous request, but it doesn't take long before he folds under his father's emotional blackmail. Together with the temperamental and uncontrollable family friend Stano (Bolek Polívka), they set off in an old delivery van on a cross-country trip. Roming is an exceptional film in all ways. Just below the surface of the comedy-road movie genre is the universal message of human solidarity, tolerance, and searching for one's own identity. The screenplay won the Sazka Prize and came in first in the national round for the international Hartley-Merrill Prize.
