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 »

This film left me irritated
1 February 2009 | by (London) – See all my reviews

I was really looking forward to seeing this film as a result of the number of praises. How disappointed I ended up being. Admittedly visually engaging, but boy oh boy, what was the story and the characterisation all about? Firstly, not sure if the main girl Laura (Zuzana Kanocz) was dabbed in the version I've seen (as the actress is Slovakian) but it just seems that as much as she is very attractive girl, she is very much lacking on the acting skills. Her character Laura goes from being 'drunk beyond belief' to being perfectly sober and her lines are delivered without any alteration throughout the film. But what scares me most is the overconfidence of the character she portrays. I thought it was quite difficult for a modern woman to find a man but this girl treats men like disposable tissues. Furthermore what kind of message is this film trying to send? Are the girls now supposed to accept the sexual infidelity as far as the man in question pays for the holidays? Good performance from Simona Stasova (Laura's mum) but overall not funny.
