Storyline

Tram driver Marie (Jirina Bohdalová) has far too much to do after her shift is over. But she likes to do it all since she loves her husband Václav (Radoslav Brzobohatý) sincerely. One day she spots him on the Lesser Town Square in Prague, kissing an attractive blonde good-bye. It seems to Marie that her small comfortable world has collapsed and she walks out of the tram in tears. But her sadness does not last long. She wipes off the tears and begins to act. She withdraws all the money from their savings books and buys off all the latest models from the Fashion Works. The visit to the beauty salon then completes her transformation into a lady.

Insightful Social Commentary Presented in Light Musical Form
31 January 2020 | by jfrentzen-942-204211See all my reviews

This engaging Czech musical lightly satirizes the banalities of 1960s life by stylizing them in song and dance routines. Traffic jams, beauty salons, gossiping neighbors in an apartment house form amusing chorus lines. The heroine (Jirina Bohdalova) is a tram driver in Prague who rebels against her work-weary existence after she discovers her husband's infidelity. Although the movie is uneven, it has charm and lovely photography.
