Loves of a Blonde

Loves of a Blonde is a Czech film directed by Milos Forman. Forman later moved to Hollywood where he made such Oscar winning films as One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. It is a very simple and spare film but it captures the feelings of romantic disappointment and life's injustices very eloquently. I was reminded of Fellini's Nights of Cabiria after watching it. Only it is funnier, quirkier and as the still above would attest, quite sexier too!

Some informative articles about Czech cinema of the sixties (also called the Czech new wave) here and here. I think this is the only Czech film I have seen so far.

Awww... sex in this movie is very sweet and "touching". Story of O won't fit in this context!

"Kolya" is another Czech movie worth a look. A *little* mainstream, but a very good film.
