Louka, a middle-aged Czech cellist, is a skirt-chasing bachelor who enjoys a lifestyle free of responsibilities. When he finds himself strapped for cash, he agrees to a marriage of convenience. But after his new bride skips town, Louka is left to father her five-year-old Russian son, Kolya. Neither could be more unhappy with their predicament, especially since they don't even speak the same language. It'll take time and patience for the cultural barrier between this unlikely father-son duo to fall, but when it does, an unbreakable bond forms in its place.
Enchanting, amusing and educational

Easy to watch but worth watching. Imaginative filming, warmly humourous and touching - and the reminder of how life was in Prague when under Russiian control, and the change after the 'Velvet Revolution'. You'll encourage others to see it as soon as you've watched it!
