Never known, this movie was a really surprise... I found this film in DVD in a small shop in Prague. Very hard to believe, how it was made this wonderful show with very modern technique, , completely shot as an old American movie of the 50's, technicallly perfect, also very dramatic and sad, script written with humour but also with sad feelings of that age. Plot also resumes very well what happened in the republic when the russians entered and also it starts very happy it finishes depressingly. Musical numbers are super, specially the one in the fair. It resumes perfectly OK the changue from happy years in Prague to the devastating after the Russian came. The girls and boys are extremely good actors and cakes. Just find this movie...also sound and photography are super!!!
