Storyline

The movie's main hero is Oskar (Jirí Machácek), a TV weatherman. Like many forty-somethings, Oskar tries to ward off his mid-life crisis and his increasingly dissatisfying marriage with a steady stream of affairs. When he manipulates a weather report for the sake of flirting, the repercussions are quick to follow: Oskar finds himself jobless and wifeless. His carefree bachelor lifestyle, interlaced with lovers of varying ages, is not, however, idyllic. Written by Czech film center

Pointless and devoid of conflict
5 October 2009 | by (Vancouver, B.C. Canada) – See all my reviews

It seems, at first, as if this movie will be a character study of a weatherman suffering some kind of mid-life crisis. He loses interest in his wife and begins cheating on her with their young son's nanny. This leads to the film's one funny gag: While the wife and her son go on a ski vacation, the philandering weatherman is free to be with the nanny. But a blizzard threatens to cut the wife's vacation short, so the weatherman starts giving deliberately misleading forecasts in which he promises that the weather will soon turn bright and sunny in hopes that his wife will see them and stay away for one more day.

And that's about it for any really funny gags. After the wife confirms her suspicions that her weatherman husband is cheating on her, she dumps him. The movie then shifts focus to the spurned wife's efforts to find love with someone else. Which she does, almost immediately.

In fact, everything seems to go quite well for everybody in this film. The focus drifts from one easygoing character to the next and the whole pointless story just rolls along almost devoid of conflict.

Many of the scenes seem to be there either to illustrate how quirky the otherwise completely undeveloped characters are or to showcase cute moments with small animals.

It all adds up to pretty well nothing in the end.
