Film at Filmový přehled


This 1967 summer holiday-time romantic film about the emotional maturing of a 15-year-old girl was directed by Jiří Hanibal and written for the screen by Ota Hofman. Hanibal and Hofman both have a rich history in films produced for children and young people. Based on a novel by Václav Čtvrtka, the filmmakers present the fragile world of a young girl. Her father leaves Jiřina alone for a few days at the summer cottage by the river. Carefree frolicking with her young friends soon evolves into the girl’s first crush – on Franta, who is situated on the other side of the river. But this young man is still dating his love from the last summer holidays, Bláža. Sixteen-year-old Andrea Čunderlíková offers up one of many convincing performances as an emotionally fragile young girl, overdubbed by Helga Čočková. The role of Franta is played by non-actor Jaroslav Bradáč.
