After thoughts-provoking and meditative classics of past weeks, we are delighted to present three great comedies from the 1960s, light-hearted and cheerful but still reflecting the human beings in their everyday life. “Intimate Lighting” by Ivan Passer who helped creating most of Forman’s Czechoslovak films before they both left for Hollywood, will be one final part of the Czech new wave puzzle in this week’s selection.
“Men about Town” by Zdeněk Podskalský, is a highly popular story about three facade workers from countryside, who will not regret any amount of training time or money to taste Prague nightlife in high class venues with delightful ladies’ company, for one night only. And “Ecce Homo Homolka” by Jaroslav Papoušek is a hilarious and merciless study of one simple Prague family heading for a Sunday trip, where everything turns in an unexpected direction.
