A funny interlinked story about seven characters in search of a relationship in Prague at the turn of the millennium.

Robert, a tour organiser and dealer, helps his friend Hanka break up with Petr, a radio DJ, who in turn falls for Vesna, a Macedonian living in Prague because it’s the best place for UFOs to land. Hanka is being chased by a respectable brain surgeon, Ondřej, whose wife, Lenka, a co-worker of Robert’s, deludes herself about their happy family. Through Ondřej, Hanka meets Jakub, a great guy, whose short-term memory suffers from too much pot smoking to the extent that he forgets that he actually already has one girlfriend... Just like Ondříček’s previous film Šeptej, this subtle comedy about the eternal need to look for a soul mate has achieved cult status among the younger generation not only in the Czech and Slovak republics, but to some extent also in Poland, and still offers a fresh and entertaining look at the problems of young people.

 

Une histoire comique au sujet de sept personnages à la recherche d'une âme sœur à Prague au tournant du millénaire. Robert, organisateur de voyages et concessionnaire, aide son amie Hanka à rompre avec Petr, un DJ de radio, qui à son tour tombe amoureux de Vesna, une Macédonienne vivant à Prague. Hanka est poursuivie des assiduités du respectable neurochirurgien Ondřej, dont la femme Lenka, une collègue de Robert, imagine encore avoir une famille parfaite. Quand Hanka rencontre Jakub, un garçon aimable avec une vision optimiste de la vie, ses espoirs renaissent, mais il s'avère rapidement que Jakub fume un peu trop de marijuana... Une comédie hilarante et déjà culte.
