Description: Standa (Jan Budar, who also co-wrote the screenplay) has plans to travel to Brno (the second largest city in Czechoslovakia) to spend his first night with Olinka (Katerina Holánová), the girl of his dreams. They are both shy and slow-witted, so while Olinka gets advice from a passel of supportive single women who live in her building, Standa relies on the encouragement of his slightly more experienced older brother, Janda (Martin Pechlát). The brothers stop beforehand in a local pub, where Janda tries to shore up Standa's courage. The pub is also visited by Mirek (Miroslav Donutil of Zelary), a frustrated actor who stars on a popular regional sitcom about a taxi driver. Though married, Mirek takes the opportunity to talk his way into the apartment of Vlasta (Pavla Tomicova), a lonely women's studies professor who lives in Olinka's building. Several other people pair off in the pub, and a narrator helpfully identifies them, describes their idiosyncrasies, and even tells us that one of them will die early the next morning. Meanwhile, Olinka deals with the unexpected return home of her overprotective mother (Jaroslava Pokorná) by drugging her unconscious and hiding her in the pantry. She plans to lose her virginity to Standa, but his extreme nervousness threatens to frustrate their romantic plans. Bored in Brno, the debut of writer/director Vladimír Morávek won the Czech Critics Award for Best Feature Film, and a slew of Czech Lions. It was also shown at the 2004 Tribeca Film Festival.~ Josh Ralske, All Movie Guide
