Joanne king in shameless
Shameless (Czech: Nestyda), is a 2008 Czech comedy film directed by Jan Hřebejk. Following their collaborations on A Novel for Women and The Holiday Makers, Czech filmmaker Hřebejk and author Michal Viewegh reunited for Shameless, a comic romp based on Viewegh’s bestselling Tales of Marriage and Sex.
Oskar (Jiří Macháček), a popular TV weather forecaster, suddenly wakes up to an altered sense of identity: rather than belonging to easygoing wife Zuzana (a bewildered Simona Babčáková), he feels he ought to belong to the whole wide world – hence the national embarrassment. His first entanglement is with babysitter Kocicka (Eva Kerekéšová), a lean teenybopper who's more attached to her pet turtle than her older lover – at least until he accidentally smothers it in the dryer. Next in line is mature pop icon Nora (Emília Vášáryová), who's about to teach him a thing or two about freedom: the more people you let in, the more alone you end up feeling.
