A rare gem of a film that was a British / Czech co-production, filmed in Prague before the Soviet clampdown of 1968 and nominated for the 1966 Golden Globe award for best English foreign language film. Vorell (James Booth) is a flighty married man with little concern for anyone other than himself. He has recently ended an affair with co-worker, Alena (Anne Heywood), the manageress of a liquor store in communist Prague, but when a government inspector, Mr Kurka (Rudolf Hrusínský), arrives to check their inventory, it soon becomes apparent that Vorell is running a scam to sell liquor on the black market.
