 A tender and beautifully observed story about the impossible odds of young romance.  A

A working-class young woman in a grey industrial Czech town sleeps with one of the band members of a group from Prague. "You are a Mondrian, not a Picasso," he tells her. When she doesn't hear from him again, she packs up and arrives on his doorstep in the big city, throwing his household (he lives with his parents) into chaos. A tender and beautifully observed 

From director Milos Forman, a gentle humanist and astute social critic who won Oscars for One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest and Amadeus, and paid homage to fellow subversives in The People vs. Larry Flynt and Man On The Moon. His growing discontent with his former life in Czechoslovakia was reflected in 1965's Loves Of A Blonde and 1967's The Firemen's Ball, two wry comedies that evolve from an implicit critique of government policy to an all-out drubbing of its corruption and ineptitude.
