Grounds for Divorce / Duvod k rozvodu DVD
Music composer Pavel Bertl is an incorrigible spendthrift and passionate player, leading to a dire financial situation. His charming wife bears this life with difficulty but continues to love her wayward husband. A diligent lawyer convinces Pavel to grant Helena freedom and even arranges for evidence to prove her husband's infidelity... "Reason for Divorce" is one of Karel Lamač's most successful comedies, depicting the so-called social scene, with Oldřich Nový as the flamboyant and extravagant lead, Adina Mandlová as the devoted and loving wife, and Anny Ondráková as the attractive girl tasked with compromising her husband. The film is based on the play "The Gambler" by German author Karel Bachmann. Aware of the somewhat cumbersome plot, Karel Lamač cast other stars of the film industry in supporting roles, ensuring a favorable reception from audiences. Alongside the aforementioned actors, viewers also enjoyed Jára Kohout, Jindřich Plachta, Otomar Korbelář, Ferenc Futurista, and Jaroslav Marvan. Oldřich Nový's rendition of Jára Beneš's song "Farewell" was also well-received. The comedy premiered in August 1937, alongside a German version featuring Anny Ondráková in the same role.
