Storyline

This romantic comedy presents a story of two women, twenty-year-old Laura (Zuzana Kanócz), an editor at a woman's weekly, and her widowed mother, a translator-interpreter named Jana ((Simona Stasová). The two of them tirelessly seek Mr. Right. Having once lived through an intense relationship with a 'typical' Czech man, Jana intentionally avoids Czech men. After several unsuccessful attempts, Laura falls in love with Oliver (Marek Vasut), a forty year old who works as an ad agency idea man. Little does she suspect that twenty years ago Oliver was Jana's true love... Written by Czech film center

Trivia

The scene in the Chinese restaurant where the woman in the background reacts strangely when the lid is lifted off the serving tray is a reference to a Czech TV commercial. In it, a couple goes into a Chinese restaurant with their pet dog and tell the staff to take care of it. Apparently something is lost in the translation as the beloved pet is taken care of by being cooked and served to them, producing the same horrified reaction from the woman. See more »

It's never perfect...
2 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

...or so it seems for the female protagonists in this smart, funny tale.

This wonderful little chick flick has dialog with pop, wonderful acting and numerous small and large plot twists and surprises.

As told from "chick HQ central" (the beauty salon), Laura and her mother Jana's adventures in love and relationships are played out. We see the characters as they see themselves and as others see them, in the past and in the present.

The clichéd romantic story is well told and navigated with a deft and humorous touch. I laughed at and with the main characters and was touched by how honest it all felt.

Best viewed with a nice German white, perhaps.
