Film at Filmový přehled


Following his debut film Svatej z Krejcárku (Saint from Krejcárek, 1969) director Petr Tuček waited nine years before making another feature project. In the meantime, Tuček worked as a television director. The main protagonist of this moralistic comedy is Mr. Dušek, the successful, if ageing, head of marketing at a large textile company. Dušek leads a comfortable life, enjoying his wealth, interesting job, family – and his attractive mistress, fashion model Marta. However, it is this extramarital affair that ultimately causes his undoing when Dušek and Marta head for the former’s cottage, only to find Dušek’s wife and young daughter arriving shortly afterwards. The hitchhiker Fanda also becomes entangled in Dušek’s games when he is asked to pretend that he is Marta’s partner. However, the young hitchhiker eventually realises that a life of lies and compromises is not for him… The part of the amoral Dušek is played by Josef Vinklář. Oldřich Navrátil takes the role of the hitchhiker, while Julie Jurištová lends her charms to the character of Marta.
