Cubs / Stenata DVD
The film follows Hana (Jaroslava Panýrková) and her boyfriend Ota (Rudolf Jelínek) as they enjoy carefree youth in Prague. However, their lives take an unexpected turn when Hana is informed about her assigned work placement, which will require her to leave Prague and work in Šumava after completing her studies. Determined to stay in Prague, Hana and other future nurses devise various strategies to avoid the reassignment. Some pretend to attempt suicide, others plan to get married immediately, and some aim to fail their exams to delay their departure, including Hana. Their attempt to sabotage the final exams fails, and they all graduate successfully. Now, Hana and Ota must quickly get married, but they face a new problem: finding a place to live. The film explores the challenges and dilemmas faced by young people as they choose their future careers and seek housing. Directed by Ivo Novák, the film was based on a story by a young Miloš Forman and touched on themes that did not align with the prevailing political views at the time, leading to criticism and temporary withdrawal from distribution after the 1959 film festival in Banská Bystrica.
