Loves of a Blonde (Lásky jedné plavovlásky) (1966)
Critic Reviews for Loves of a Blonde (Lásky jedné plavovlásky)
This charming, offbeat Czech comedy, which was nominated for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar, put director Milos Forman on the map.
The Czechoslovak Socialist Republic, factory and ballroom and kitchen and bedroom, shot in documentary-grays and peopled with deadpan, profoundly human homeliness
Milos Forman's breakthrough film is a haunting picture of life during the Communist era.
Presumably, the film's supposed to be a quirky and revealing slice of life - but since the central character is never developed beyond the superficial, it's impossible to care about her.
Audience Reviews for Loves of a Blonde (Lásky jedné plavovlásky)
A naive factory worker falls for a traveling piano player after a one night stand, only to have her heart broken when she travels to Prague and discovers that the loser still lives with his parents. Years before Milos Forman directed one of the best films ever made, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest he directed this little gem. Lásky Jedné Plavovlásky may be set in Czechoslovakia but it has universal appeal. Most of us can relate to the powerful attraction of a first love, or the oppression of an overbearing mother, or the heartache of finding out that someone you love doesn't love you back. Not Forman's best work, but still pertinent and charming.
This film wasn't that engaging, but I really liked it.
Scenes like the one with the three male friends at one table and the female friends in another, plotting out ways to approach the ladies to ask them out without looking like complete jerks but failing miserably; or even more important and awkward, when the young pianist Milda arrives home early morning, after partying all night, and finding the blond girl Andula sleeping in his bed, he doesn't even remember her, and his annoying mother murmuring sermons about responsability. Slices of life, mundane, unglamorous, pathetic, embarrasing, funny and tragic, like it all could turn out when you fall in love. Some of these situations will certainly shape a new concience and stronger armor in the blond's heart. She will take note of all these thinkings in a lonely corner of the noisy spot where she makes a living. A warm and sincere view to the window of a woman's soul.
