One Plus One Is Two

director: Václav Táborský
original title: Jeden a jedna jsou dva
country: Czechoslovakia
year: 1965
running time: 10 min.


Jiří Menzel, a bachelor, is looking for a partner in an instructional film about how not to be alone. This socially futuristic probe into the souls of singles with a lack of dating opportunities shows that new times offer new possibilities – like a Swiss computer for finding the partner of your dreams.


Václav Táborský (born 1928), a Czech pioneer of cinéma vérité, made over eighty short films and almost fifty educational programmes. After August 1968, he emigrated to Canada, where he worked as an educator. His work is divided into satirical documentary features and feature films for children, including Escape in the Wind and Miraculous Puzzle.
