Set in a Central Europe rapidly fragmenting after the fall of
Communism, "Men in Space" follows a cast of dissolute Bohemians,
political refugees, football referees, deaf police agents,
assassins and stranded astronauts as they chase a stolen icon
painting from Sofia to Prague and beyond. The icon's melancholy
orbit is reflected in the various characters' ellipses and near
misses as they career vertiginously through all kinds of space:
physical, political, emotional and metaphysical. What emerges is a
vision a world in a state of disintegration.
