      But do they??? This is showing just one segment of the population! Remember, the film aims to show this side of Slovak life-- a side of Slovak life that seems to be repeated over and over (we have nothing, there is no money, life in Slovakia is hard....) It will sound cold, but many people in Slovakia are almost professional complainers about life. I lived there- made Slovak wages- and certainly money was low. BUT, none of us were starving in my village. We could make the choice to enjoy what we did have or complain that "Slovakia is a small country, with no chance.... ved' nie sme Amerika." 

      There are Slovaks, however, who enjoy what they have and keep hope- but they were hardly the focus of this film!

      Sad to see it happening in Slovakia when the mining industry closes
      and towns lose their reason for existing.
