Then she really does meet the prince she dreamed of. She enjoys a wonderful summer vacation and her first amorous adventure with Marek, but also her first disappointment... Maruska's grandfather Vlastimil also finds out that true love never withers. He runs into his long-lost love Libuska (Eliska Balzerová) after several years. They are like two young love-struck fools. It is love with the scent of marijuana. The witty and colorful retiree Libuska has fallen for this medicinal herb in her autumn years...We'll get a glimpse of the first true love between youths, the crises of middle-aged love and the rediscovery of love in old age.

This is actually one of the most real and honest movies I have ever seen. Love makes the people in this movie wake up. The characters are brilliant, the acting extraordinary. I think this is an amazing film that shows the struggle of human beings and that when people open their hearts to love, love comes to them. It is about being open, accepting, and fearless in accepting Love when it shows up in your life, no matter what you have been through before. A wonderful lesson.
I think this deserves a 10/10 and very few movies deserve this. I guess people could not appreciate this movie because they themselves have a closed heart.
