Up and Down

Up and Down ★★ Horem Padem 2004 (R)

Overstuffed character drama begins with a couple of Czech low-lifes who are transporting a group of illegal immigrants from India. They discover a baby has been left behind in their truck, which they sell to a pawnshop owner who in turn sells the infant to a desperate childless couple who change their lives (breaking off from their hooligan friends) to try starting over as a family. Then there's a second scenario involveng a man who's visiting his divorced parents for the first time in 20 years (he'd immigrated to Australia). Martin discovers that his dad lives with Martin's exgirlfriend and they have an 18-year-old daughter. This makes for a very awkward family lunch, which includes Martin's resentful (and racist) mother. Czech with subtitles. 108m/C DVD .

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
