, Miro Drobný’s feature debut, has skyrocketed at the box office after its opening weekend. With 43,189 admissions, the doc shot up to the number-two spot in the list of the best openings registered by domestic films since 1993, outperforming Juraj Jakubisko’s historical drama Bathory [+see also:

by 7,264 admissions. However, the documentary fell short by 6,125 paying viewers in its bid to conquer the number-one spot, currently held by last year’s documentary 38.

Similarly to 38, which is a posthumous tribute to the country’s favourite hockey player, Pavol Demitra, Rytmus: The Street Dream is a biopic revolving around Slovakian rapper and media personality Patrik Vrbovský, who performs under his stage name, Rytmus (translated as Rhythm). The documentary examines his rise from the bottom to the top, following him as he becomes a “self-made icon” on the domestic music scene. The director also delves into the elusive Vrbovský’s private life, adopting a family and racial angle as he looks into the protagonist’s heritage.

After spending four weeks in cinemas, the documentary climbed into the top ten of the highest-grossing domestic films, reaching sixth place with a total of €380,697 (last year, 38 took second place, grossing €543,991 in total, while Bathory still reigns undefeated, boasting takings of €1,614,553). Rytmus: The Street Dream has so far been seen by 76,835 paying viewers in Slovakia and has reached 32,998 admissions in the Czech Republic (taking 4.6 million Czech crowns, or around €170,000). 

Rytmus: The Street Dream is produced by Miro Drobný, Czech outfit Romeofilms and eSlovensko. It is distributed by Itafilm in Slovakia and by Falcon in the Czech Republic.
