A factory manager in rural Czechoslovakia bargains with the army to send men to the area, to boost the morale of his young female workers, deprived of male company since the local boys have been conscripted. The army sends reservists, mostly married middle-aged men – and the local beauty Andula, spurns those bold enough to try to win her, for the jazz pianist, newly come from Prague to perform. He seduces her and impresses her, telling her “most women are round, like guitars but you are a guitar by Picasso”. Staying the night with him causes a lecture on a young woman’s honour at her hostel so she throws over her other suitors and makes her way to Prague to find the young man. His protective Mamma and weary Pappa are not pleased when she arrives on the doorstep with her suitcase.

Film Review

This is the second of Forman's Czech films I've watched after the other Criterion release, THE FIREMAN'S BALL (1967) – though that was via a late-night Italian TV broadcast some years ago; these two films constitute his most celebrated work from this early phase in his career.While a pleasant and sharply-observed comedy-drama in itself, which must have seemed fresh at the time (particularly the intimate detail of its teenage romance), I feel that a lot of these unassuming but critically-acclaimed foreign films – often made under strained political conditions – tend to come off as overrated when viewed today (a similar recent example I encountered was CLOSELY WATCHED TRAINS [1966]). That said, the film benefits immensely from the wonderful cinematography by Miroslav Ondricek (Forman's longtime collaborator).Besides, it also includes a couple of lengthy – and delightful – set-pieces: the party sequence, in which the heroine and her two best friends are picked up by a tri…

I had very high hopes for this film, as I LOVED several other Czech films I’ve recently seen. However, once I finished the movie, I wondered WHY is it rated so highly? It had very poor and cheap cinematography and the story just did absolutely nothing for me. It was all about a town where there were MANY single ladies and not enough men. One of these women falls for a pianist and he convinces her to lost her virginity to him. Then, she travels to the city where he lives only to find out he really didn’t love her but just wanted to get in her dress (i.e., he wanted sex–he was not a transvestite). THAT’S IT!!! Nothing more to this very bland story. It seemed like they had about 1/2 of a movie and just padded it.
