Film at Filmový přehled


The works of director Antonín Moskalyk are largely found in the television archives, but in 1965 he contributed to the Czech film satire genre with a comedy about quintuplets in the world of real socialism. The quintuplets are born to Mr. And Mrs. Tůma, but the family has nowhere to live. Officials arrive on the scene and decide to award the record-breakers secure accommodation; they house the Tůma family in a villa equipped with a number of modern inventions. The inventions usually don't work, however, and the close supervision of the bureaucrats causes the couple to become mutually alienated. The calm and comfort of the family is also destroyed by a requirement to ceaselessly fill in detailed questionnaires about their intimate life. Fortunately, a formula for boosting the birth rate eventually fails... This relaxing comedy, which takes some mildly ironic potshots at state planning, is the work of screenwriters Irena and Ota Hofmans. The main character roles were successfully handled by Dana Syslová and Oldřich Vlach.
