Synopsis:
A subtle and beautifully observed social satire that deftly balances hope and despair, 'A Blonde in Love' is widely celebrated as one of the great films of the 1960's. This bittersweet romance from Milos Forman, the multiple Oscar-winning director of 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest' and 'Amadeus', unfolds as a sweetly seductive tale of young love, but also provides a wry critique of life under totalitarianism. Aided by gorgeous cinematography and naturalistic performances, the film adeptly distils universal truths from the simplest of situations, presenting them with a sharp yet compassionate eye.

Great portrayal of a time of transition. - A Blonde in Love review by TE

Classic film that bridges the Czech cinema of the 1960s into the 1970s.

Watching it again after a long time made me realise how funny it is. This is an elegant, wry tale of the times. An era of social repression is on the cusp of 'freeing up', and Forman produces a wonderfully well-judged metaphor for this process in the travails of this young "blonde in love".

The sequence in the apartment of her lover's parents is a priceless blend of comedy and tragedy, exemplifying the wit and energy of the whole film.
