Film at Filmový přehled


Halina Pawlowská’s first professional script, which she wrote whilst studying at FAMU in Prague, was for this 1983 feature film. With a tragicomic tone, she tells the story of a teacher, Eva Šebková, who has just started her first job at a school on an estate. In a feminised environment, the lonely young woman finds it difficult to meet people. Nor is her new friend, neighbour Dáša, much help as she vainly attempts to find her a suitable boyfriend. Apart from problems with work and at her new flat, our heroine also faces difficulties with various men, whose suitability and credibility are, to say the least, questionable. The director, Jaroslava Vošmiková, chose the now forgotten Jindra Bartošová for the title role. The part of hair stylist Dáša, however, went to Veronika Jeníková. Well-known actors crop up as Eve’s suitors, as well as her colleagues from school.
