Description Technical Specs
Three middle-aged friends in a sleepy, second-class resort town are thrown       into a state of sexual longing and frustration when a tightrope walker arrives   with his beautiful young assistant. Director Jiri Menzel (Closely Watched     Trains) also plays the tightrope walker in this gentle, wistful comedy.     "Menzel's evocation of place and mood, of soft summer days threatened by       winter, of regret for lost youth and opportunity, of hope for things to come,  is perfection" (Tom Milne, Time Out). Capricious Summer won the      top prize at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival. In Czech with       Jiri Menzel---Czechoslovakia---1967---74 mins.
