I loved this film, bought as an impulse purchase based on no prior information. It may fairly be described as arthouse, it has beautiful colour...but there's more to it than that. We see a chain of sexual relationships between the protagonists in a variety of combinations, with the main emphasis being on wry humour which is so much a hallmark of the classic period of Czech cinema. It mixes sex with slapstick, and has probably the only usage of a rectal tumour as a running joke (I won't explain this...it spoils the fun). Many of the sex scenes - which scarcely merit the use of the term 'explicit' for those who are bothered by such things - are very funny indeed, most of the characters are likeable, and some of the humour is very broad. There are many images of people smoking, and this demonstrates how much cinema has lost by being frightened of the cigarette. There are soft drugs - in comic scenes (no bitter remorse or recrimination), and comic, almost cartoon, violence at times. The good guy ends up dead, the bad guy prospers without becoming aware of his own pathetic image, a church falls to bits and there's an unexpected lesbian liaison - all part of the recipe for a joyous experience for the viewer. As I said, it's archetypical Czech humour, but doesn't rely on stereotypes other than to admit their existence and ridicule them. Watch it for fun, and don't look for hidden meanings...life's too short.
