Martyrs of Love + The Czech Connection

In this triptych of mournful comedies characterised by love turning sour we meet a young office worker who fantasises about erotic encounters, a girl dreaming of working as a maid being wooed by aristocrats and an orphan who stumbles across a family of wealthy eccentrics who welcome him as a long lost relative. A surreal trio of stories inspired by silent films in which frustration is replaced by daydreaming and music stands in for dialogue creating a world independent of reality.
