Description:
One of those pleasingly elliptical Czech comedies which flourished briefly during the 1960s.

An artist's studio is descended upon by a group of retired men and a young mother who agree to model in the nude for money. Comedy ensues as the students and the local bureaucracy react to the models, all in need of extra money. Several running gags border on slapstick as the officials and the students don't know what to do with the nude models.

"The film director's tendentious preoccupation with man's foibles proves that, under totalitarianism, the portrayal of purely human values becomes itself ideological." (Amos Vogel, Film as Subversive Art)
