As filmmaker she is not fascinated by stories of individuals that are emotionally strong and heart-catching. Čákanyová wants to offer her audiences a wider perspective in order to inspire them to new ideas. 

'Through my film Slovaks can look at themselves from the perspective of Michael— someone who is somewhat odd, even nasty at times, but is not stupid; who happens to come from a superpower, a country that is culturally and politically incomparably more influential than Slovakia. Such person looks around without our Slovak sentiment and uses a language that is lingua franca. He points out the provinciality and pretentiousness that are deeply ingrained in us. We hardly see beyond the tip of our nose, we wage petty wars; we are xenophobic and not generous enough. It is ridiculous. What saves it all is just nature and animals.' - Viera ČÁKANYOVÁ
