He longs for love but becomes a sexual outlaw instead. The hero of this teenage comedy from debuting director Karel Coma is sixth-former Oskar (Kryštof Hádek), a committed computer buff. When he realises the girl of his dreams will never fancy a shabby, skint student, he starts up a business which enables him to radically change his image, but it also draws him against his will into a carousel of erotic adventures.
A teenage comedy describing how a computer buff becomes a sexual outlaw. Oskar is about to take his school-leaving exams but, instead of revising, he prefers to spend hours sitting in front of his monitor. When he’s not glued to his computer, he hangs out with his friend Filip looking for romantic adventures. But the girl he has his eye on goes for his enterprising classmate Viktor, an electronics dealer, instead. Determined to get his girl, Oskar decides to radically change his life. His computer hobby reaps financial rewards, and he invests the money in a change of image. Everything seems to go according to plan, until a slight “accident” occurs in the flat of one of his female clients. Oskar would rather just forget about this trivial incident, but not so the lady concerned, who can’t keep his versatile talents to herself. Thus, the young man becomes an “expert” in quite a different field unrelated to computers. The film is the feature debut of screenwriter and director Karel Coma.
