Five comic tales of love showcase the growing Czechoslovakian film industry.

"A manifesto of sorts for the Czech New Wave, this five-part anthology shows off the breadth of expression and the versatility of the movement’s directors. Based on stories by the legendary writer Bohumil Hrabal, the shorts range from the surreally chilling to the caustically observant to the casually romantic, but all have a cutting, wily view of the world"

A café proprietor tries to turn a laundress into a dancing star, despite objections from his current girlfriend.

DirJean Renoir CastJean Gabin , Francoise Arnoul , Maria Felix .

 LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Jean Renoir. Jean Gabin, Francoise Arnoul, Maria Felix, Edith Piaf.

"Not top-drawer Renoir, but still an impressive, enjoyable fiction about beginnings of the Moulin Rouge and impresario Gabin's creation of the cancan. Originally released in the U.S. in 1956; a brilliantly beautiful restored version, with approximately 10m. of additional footage, opened theatrically in 1985. Originally released in France as FRENCH CANCAN at 102m."

The star of a theater company hesitates between three men.

DirJean Renoir CastAnna Magnani , Riccardo Rioli ,

 LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Jean Renoir. Anna Magnani, Odoardo Spadaro, Nada Fiorelli, Dante Rino, Duncan Lamont, Jean Debucourt.

"Delightful film about an acting troupe touring South America in the 18th century and the amorous adventures of its leading lady. Theatrical and stylized, this is one of the great films about acting--and a stunning achievement in the use of color. Ironically, it was a flop when first released, then critically rediscovered. Photographed by Claude Renoir; music by Vivaldi."
