Most of the jokes used in the movie are based on Czech writer Petr Sabach's book "Hovno hori" ("Shit burns"). The book consists of various unconnected stories. See more »
I have read in "100 + 1 foreign interests" magazine such an piquancy that an average woman thinks about sex every 5 minutes and an average person, like man, guy thinks about it every 7 minutes.
So, what is the result?

Basically, the classic story line-boy loves girl, boy loses girl to best friend but with the added advantage of her staying lost. He and his family, including a father who is communist but with a human face live below her and her family, including a father who despises all things socialist. Of course there is well played tension but it is lightly guided into a sad humor. The film is dedicated to all those who lost friends and family to emigration during communism here. It tells one of their stories with such empathy that I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to have a window on the Czech Republic.
