Carla: This card is titled “Mezinarodni Filmovy Festival V Karlovych Varrech”, or “The Karlovy Vary International Film Festival”. This is a Czech film festival held every year in Karlovy Vary. I am ashamed to say I have never heard of it. It apparently is one of the oldest film festivals in the world and a major event in Central and Eastern Europe. And I am even more ashamed when I see the actresses: Elisa Montes, Piqueras A.Herrera, and Claudia Cardinale. The festival welcomed some famous names. I wonder why their names are without a Czech twist this time. They are all three lovely actresses. No doubt about that. But those glasses they are holding: they are huge! I don’t know whether they are average glasses in the Czech Republic. The glasses held by Montes and Herrera are glasses for white wine, the one in Cardinale’s hand is for red wine, and there is someone on the right, outside the picture, who is also holding a red wine glass. If I have to guess, each glass can contain a full bottle of wine. No wonder they are all laughing
