With a handstand and a magic trick, Ernie the Conjuror invites everyone to that evening's performance... Ernie is a tightrope walker of only modest skill, but with a slim and beautiful assistant, Anna. Antonin speaks to her. The two spend the night in the change room by the river, Antonin massaging her feet all night long. Katherine decides to move into the caravan with Ernie. But now the major and even the canon sense Anna's attractiveness...Capricious Summer featuring Jana Preissová and Rudolf Hrušínský is streaming with subscription on The Criterion Channel. It's a comedy and romance movie with a better than average IMDb audience rating of 7.0 (1,339 votes) and was well received by critics.
