Movie Details

A middle-aged man who wants more excitement than monogamy offers gets a lot more than he counted on in this comedy from director Jan Hrebejk. Oskar (Jiri Machacek) is a television weatherman who, after years of happy marriage to radio host Zuzana (Simona Babcakova), decides he wants a younger woman and takes up with their Hungarian housekeeper (Eva Kerekesova).
