Details

Milos Forman s 1965 feature (Oscar-nominated as Best Foreign Language Film that year) is a bitter comic tale of a young Czech girl who falls in love with a musician after a one-night stand and follows him to Prague where she moves in with him and his disapproving parents, throwing all of their lives into chaos.

A wry comedy that evolves from an implicit critique of government policy, corruption and ineptitude, A Blonde in Love is a tender and beautifully observed story about the impossible odds of young romance in Communist Czechoslovakia. It is also important as one of the first works of a world-renowned director, showing the beginnings of the style and pre-occupations prominent in many of Forman's subsequently acclaimed films including Fireman s Ball, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Ragtime, The People vs Larry Flintand Amadeus.
