In this classic film, a dentist (Zdeněk Svěrák) strives to find meaning in his life. He desires a son, a peaceful life away from modernization. His wife Blanka does not see herself changing "nappies." A computer programmer, she strives to be part of the technological boom and sees computers as a way of advancing her career. When his wife's computer assistant Tereza shows an interest in him, change may be on the horizon. (Dir. Vít Olmer, 1984, 79 min., Czech with English subtitles)
