Czech Comedy Classics: Eva Fools Around

On March 18, at 7 pm, Bistro Bohem will present EVA FOOLS AROUND (Eva tropí hlouposti) as part of the film and beer series featuring Czech comedy classics. In the film, Eva tries to steal the instructions for planting the roses cultivated by her neighbor as a present for her aunt’s birthday. She pretends she is an excellent secretary in the hopes of securing a job with the neighbor and stealing the instructions. In the course of her masquerade, she falls in love.

Eva Fools Around | Eva tropí hlouposti
DIR: Martin Frič, 1939, 85 minutes, Czech with English subtitles

Eva and her brother visit their aunt for her 60th birthday. Her aunt’s wish is to grow the kind of roses her neighbor has cultivated; however, she is not on friendly terms with her neighbor Záhorský. Therefore, Eva applies for a job as a secretary in the hopes of discovering the secret of these exquisite roses. In turn, she ends up falling in love with Jiri who has nestled his way into the family in order to win back his stolen family jewels. Eva’s brother, meanwhile, falls head over heels for the neighbor’s daughter.
