A Blonde in Love

Presented from a brand new 4K restoration that premiered at 2019 Cannes Film Festival, A Blonde in Love is widely regarded as one of the great films of the 60s.

A subtle and beautifully observed social satire which maintains a remarkable balance between despair and hope, this bittersweet romance from Miloš Forman, the multiple Oscar-winning director of Black PeterOne Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest and Amadeus, unfolds as a sweetly seductive film but also provides a wry critique of life under totalitarianism. Forman is able to distil universal truths from the simplest of situations and present them with a sharp yet compassionate eye.

Aided by Miroslav Ondříček’s wonderful camerawork, and with Ivan Passer (director of Intimate Lighting) as assistant and co-scriptwriter, the pleasures to be gained here are immense.


“If I had to pick just one film, it would be A Blonde in Love”
- Ken Loach

“A small gem... indescribably exact, touching and funny”
- Tom Milne, Time Out Film Guide

“A keystone of the Czech New Wave... political bite, deft humour and a warm but unblinkered view of humanity”
- Philip Kemp, Total Film
