Storyline

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. Written by MK

Trivia

There are a number of cuts of this film, and it is impossible to know which one you are buying. The version in theatrical release in the US contained a sequence wherein Milda, the pianist, is tricked by a girl into climbing through a window into the bedroom of another couple, thinking he'll find her waiting for him. A version on videotape available in the US for many years cuts that sequence. The Czech DVD available now cuts that sequence and also cuts a sequence in which Milda tries to teach self-defense methods to Andulka in his room when they first meet in Zruc. See more »

Simple and Touching Story
7 July 2005 | by (Virginia, USA) – See all my reviews

Milos Forman's "Loves of a Blonde" which he made in Czechoslovakia in 1965 way before "Cuckoo Nest" and "Amadeus" tells a very simple bitter-sweet tale about a teenaged girl who works in a shoe factory in a small town. With sixteen girls to one man - her chances to find a man of her dreams were not very high. One evening, she meets an attractive and young piano player who tells her about Prague and compares her to a guitar that could've been painted by Picasso. After they spend the night together, he leaves and she travels to Prague to find him. The film has been one of my favorites for many years and my opinion did not change after I saw it again a week ago - funny, sad, tender, and realistic film about searching for love, broken promises, shattered hearts, and universality of hope.
