Jeff and I finally watched Román pro ženy yesterday, the 2005 Czech movie based on a book by Michal Viewegh and directed by Filip Renč. I was a bit disappointed with the film but I’m glad it made me “discover” the singer Iva Frühlingová whose several songs were used in it. I’ve known about her for a while but didn’t really know her music until I saw the movie. Iva sings mainly in French, which is explained by the fact that she lived in Paris for eight years. She became popular in France and Belgium before she received a Gold and Platinum Album in the Czech Republic for her first release Litvínov (2004).
