From Wikipedia: 

Intimate Lighting / Intimní osvětlení follows the adventures of a professional symphony musician, Peter, who comes to a small town to see a friend he has missed, Bambas. He is a teacher and performer at funerals. The two meet again and get involved in some comic exploits, including a possible symphony concert.

Loves of a Blonde / Lásky jedné plavovlásky tells the story of a young woman who has a routine job in a shoe factory in provincial Czechoslovakia. When the army holds maneuvers near her home town, the factory supervisor organizes a mixer for the largely female workforce and the all-male soldiers. Mishaps and misunderstandings ensue.
