The arrival of the troops is greeted with great excitement, but the girls in the town are disappointed to see that the men are older reservists, and not the strapping young men they'd envisioned. Still, when a band plays at the local pub, the girls show up to be ogled by the older men, many of whom are married. A trio of reservists sends a bottle of wine to Andula (Hana Brejchova), Marie (Marie Salacova), and… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This charming, offbeat Czech comedy, which was nominated for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar, put director Milos Forman on the map."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Milos Forman's breakthrough film is a haunting picture of life during the Communist era."
‑ Dan Lybarger, Nitrate Online
"Like Forman's Fireman's Ball, you won't remember much about the actual plot because it is secondary in importance"
‑ John A. Nesbit, Old School Reviews
"Sweet and silly, without a whole lot to say"
‑ Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com
"The Czechoslovak Socialist Republic, factory and ballroom and kitchen and bedroom, shot in documentary-grays and peopled with deadpan, profoundly human homeliness"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"Presumably, the film's supposed to be a quirky and revealing slice of life - but since the central character is never developed beyond the superficial, it's impossible to care about her."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Forman somehow manages to craft comedy that neither veers from the challenges of realism nor reeks of shameless manipulation."
‑ Jeremy Heilman, MovieMartyr.com
‑ Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com
"... its simple but meaningful story has captured the emotions of its subject in a timeless and real fashion."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"a funny, often moving depiction of the youthful romantic urge and the unfortunate disappointment that often follows"
‑ James Kendrick, Q Network Film Desk
