Storyline

This romantic comedy presents a story of two women, twenty-year-old Laura (Zuzana Kanóczová), 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 »

Czech "Sex and the City, The Movie"
16 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The hallmark of all the Czech movies I've seen seem to be beautiful visuals. From film locations to costumes, this movie fully lives up to that tradition.

The humor is light and smart. The pacing, mostly good.

I saw it at the Czech Embassy in the United States (The embassy, as a side-note, has a wonderful program of events, most free to the public). I'm sure the audience of Czechs further enhanced the experience of watching this movie. Although a lot of the humor had universal appeal, so an American like me didn't feel left out.

I recommend seeing this movie...with a friend or five.
