Film at Filmový přehled


The escapist comedy Ten svetr si nesvlíkej (Don’t Take This Pullover Off!, 1980) was directed by Zdeněk Míka to a script adapted from the stage play Domov v havárii (Home in an Accident) by Blanka Jirásková. The film tells the story of the fractious Novák family. Strict father Karel hates any kind of extravagance and his wife has learned to put up with his ways. However, 17-year-old Míša wants a life of her own. She begins dating Tomáš but is unsure whether to introduce him to the family. Due to a confusion of names, Věra suspects her blameless husband of adultery… This comedy of errors won over audiences thanks to a talented cast and strong performances by Petr Nárožný and Iva Janžurová as Mr. and Mrs. Novák. Successful child actress Zuzana Bydžovská, who had played several smaller roles, took the part of the daughter. Míša´s boyfriend was portrayed by another popular actor, Miroslav Vladyka.
