Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
In a charming comedy set in the 1920s, Czech director Jiri Menzel gives an inspired rendition of a bemused, confused Dr. Gyorgy Racz who returns to Budapest after a long absence and comes across Lajos Nemeth (Miklos Tolnay), an old friend in deep trouble. Lajos has several women on a string, or multiple strings, and his mixed-up love-life is all the more impossible because some of these women have very jealous husbands. Gyorgy steps into this romantic maze and finds it difficult to disentangle the mess without making matters worse.
