A lovingly observed valentine for opera fans, Czech New Wave master Jirí Menzel’s sex farce gently lampoons the opera world’s eccentricities, egomania, abiding passions, and workaday realities. We watch a small town opera company’s efforts to mount a production of Mozart’s Don Giovanni. The eccentric director Vitek has unusual views on opera—he confides to the audience that he’s a great lover of sopranos, opera not so much—and uses the production as an excuse to seduce every woman he meets. Passions flare onstage and behind the scenes as the company prepares for a wholly unique adaptation of the Mozart classic. This year’s Czech submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar. (102 mins.)

Filmography: Closely Watched Trains (66), My Sweet Little Village (85), Larks on a String (90), I Served the King of England (06).

Sponsored by Nel Centro.


Interests: Oscar Submissions, Narrative Feature, Comedy.
