Inspired by a tale from Milan Kundera’s collection Laughable Loves, Hynek Bočan’s feature debut tells the story of Karel Klíma, a professor at the Academy of Fine Arts who gets himself into trouble when he loses a paper written by an aspiring but hopeless student. A white lie results in the manic author of the worthless text aggressively confronting Klíma, which wreaks havoc in the latter’s professional and personal life. This sardonic story of the minor transgressions of a scholar grown lazy offers a merciless criticism of a society based on hypocrisy and envy.

94 mins, 1965, Czechoslovakia, Black and White, 35mm, Subtitled
