Miroslav Hubáček, 1966

Film at Filmový přehled


Czech actors seldom have tailor-made roles written for them. One exception came in the film Flám (The Spree, 1966), in which the leading role is portrayed by Miloš Kopecký. The 44-year-old actor was at the peak of his fame (in 1966 alone he starred in four features). The comedy mines Kopecký’s charisma to good effect, in what is a somewhat ambivalent role. Director Miroslav Hubáček casts his star as the outwardly sophisticated architect Donát, who finds it very hard to meet the expectations placed upon him. This is also the case with his superficial lover (played by Olga Schoberová), who expects protection from her partner while supposedly seeking work. Donát succumbs to deception when he meets a beautiful woman (played by Jana Hlaváčová), whom he believes could genuinely revolutionise his average life. With the addition of simple anecdotes and spirited, witty dialogue, the film was partly influenced by the star himself, who brought in Jiří Mucha to adapt Otto Zelenka’s script.
