Directed by Věra Chytilová | 1983

With Leoš Suchařípa, Libuše Pospíšilová, Vlasta Špicnerová

Chytilová’s third and final collaboration with writer-costume designer Ester Krumbachová—with whom she also co-scripted Daisies and Fruit of Paradise—is an unsparing portrait of an aging Don Juan who foolishly clings to youth by pursuing younger women. A pointed riposte to the libidinal wish-fulfillment fantasies peddled by so many male directors, this caustic comedy mercilessly skewers male vanity and gives women the last laugh.
