Storyline

Adolf (Milos Kopecký), the irresistible seducer of women, is fond of Janicka (Hana Lelitová), a novice opera singer. The girl, however, prefers famous men and Adolf thus does not have a single chance with her. One day in a hospital, he meets a Greek partisan named Apostolek (Pavel Landovský) who impresses him with his spontaneity and ease in solving all problems, especially those with women. Adolf has an idea for a revenge. He makes Apostolek familiar with social manners, dresses him after the latest fashion and introduces him to Janicka as a Greek conductor. Janicka instantly falls in love with the made-up composer and Apostolek does no better. Written by NFA.cz

Mellow, offbeat yet funny story of love triangle between cynical womanizer, his greek immigrant counterpart and maidenly singer. Could be classified as tragicomedy, but more of a comedy than the latter. Movie, shot in beautiful black and white, uses interesting narrative techniques and keeps steady, solid pace and never gets boring. Definitely recommended - 4/5
