Did You Know?


In the scene where Sarlota (Vica Kerekes) is introduced, she risks accidentally exposing more than desired for various reasons. 1. The dress she wears is extremely low cut, exposing her bare legs and barely covering her butt. 2. She takes off her underwear in that scene and isn't seen putting it back on. 3. She repeatedly bends over and lifts her legs, lifting the short skirt of her dress in the process. But despite that, she never does expose more than her legs. See more »

Infidelity in Prague
13 April 2019 | by Uriah43See all my reviews

This film essentially centers around two men named "Rudolf" (Bolek Polivka) and his son-in-law "Ondrej" (Jiri Machacek) who are both married and live in Prague. As it so happens, Rudolf is having multiple affairs and although Ondrej knows about them has kept this news from both his mother-in-law "Marta" (Simona Stasova) and his wife "Alice" (Petra Hrebickova). Then one day, while both of them have gone to play pool, a new prospective mistress for Rudolf by the name of "Carlotta" (Vica Kerekes) playfully puts her undergarments in the pocket of Ondrej's jacket and when Alice discovers it he naturally blames Rudolf. Alice then tells Marta and things take on a new life after that. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that this was a fairly good comedy for the most part which benefitted greatly from the exotic location. Admittedly, it wasn't as light-hearted as I would have liked and it seemed a bit uneven at times but even so it was entertaining enough and for that reason I have rated it accordingly. Slightly above average.
