  • Want some stywe pap with that?

Winner of an Oscar for best foreign film, and also the highest ranking foreign language film (position 11) on the IMDB's list of Top 250 movies.

This is the story of an elderly philanderer, who needs money to buy a car to transport his cello around. He agrees to marry a Russian woman for money, so that he can buy a car. Unfortunately she absconds as soon as she is married, to be with her lover in Germany. Then he finds out that her 5 year old son was part of the deal, and he now has to play daddy to the kid, even though neither can speak the other's language. Naturally they have a beneficial effect on each other's lives...
The film is set in Prague before the overthrow of communism.
