Donšajni are womanizers with grace, says Jiří Menzel
Director Jiří Menzel returned to the working title of his new film. Instead of Womanisers it is going to be Donšajni that will launch in cinemas at the end of May. The film has just been edited and other postproduction work is in progress.
“Both titles are virtually synonymous. I just had the feeling that the word womanizer would suggest more vulgarity than the film contains,” Menzel said to explain the change of the film’s title. For him “donšajn“ is a womanizer with grace.
