Product Description

Sexual drama from the man they call the Czech Fellini, Juraj Jakubisco. Never one to shy away from controversy, Jakubisco presents this highly-sexualised web of interweaving stories and characters. The tousled web includes Sabrina, her boss Zikmund and his partner Viola, the pleasure seeking ageing hippy photographer Bakchus, the naive Jarouska and his wife, the barmaid Messalina, the confused virgin Kristyna, the cynical med student and part time prostitute Kleopatra and the rocker, Adam. Each is living out a different little drama but they're all connected and they're all sexual. The film examines the aftermath of fun - the resounding consequences for others and ourselves, of careless sexual actions. Also poignantly touched upon is the resulting emptiness of finding that the short term kicks of a free and easy sexual lifestyle doesn't do anything but exacerbate the emptiness we use it to dispel.

4.0 out of 5 stars great fun 4 Oct 2013
By cartoon
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
this is a Czech comedy which is rather odd , very surreal and highly entertaining . Its a laugh about various characters hoping in and out of bed with each other ; the love obsessive husband and his less than keen wife , the determined employee , her boss and his wife , the player would be rock star , the part time prostitute , the virgin and the hippy photographer [ played by the totally hammy Franco Nero ; remember him from 70s shockers !] . its all late night entertaining , not hot sexy but a great mad comedy about sex. A little hidden treasure and yes the running gag about a tumour is great bad taste humour .

5.0 out of 5 stars A modern film in the classic Czech idiom 15 Feb 2011
By T. Russell VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.
