Loves Of A Blonde (Lasky Jedne Plavovlasky)

BBB.5

(out of 5)


Deceptively simple charmer that takes place in a Czech factory town, where the women outnumber the men sixteen to one. The army has even placed a regiment in the area to help out with the situation, but lovely young Andula isn’t taken by any of them; instead, at the social mixer she attends with her girlfriend she gets picked up by a rogue of a pianist who seduces her and then goes back to Prague. She, being young and impressionable, follows him there and experiences the hilarity of his bickering parents. Shot beautifully in black and white by Miroslav Ondricek, this was celebrated director Milos Forman’s first international success, a witty, wise film that never overstates itself but captures the sad loss of innocence that comes to us all with startling poignancy.
