| It's a funny, musical, nudie, political satire
I love this (short) film. I first caught it late one night and luckily recorded it (mentioned John Cleese so I thought 'why not?'). It bears very little relation to the Monty Python style of humor.

It's a tale of a double bass player (John) commisioned to play at the engagement of a princess (Connie) and some count she's never met. John is early so is rather rudely told to go away until the scheduled time. Connie is bored with her life and just wants to fish. John ends up having a swim in the river and Connie sneaks away from a dress fitting to fish (co-incidentally nearby). Connie's float gets caught and she strips (don't want to get the dress wet or dirty) so she can retreive it. A peasant pinches her clothes and runs away (pinching John's as well on the way).

The naked pair meet and have to get back to the castle (and dressed) without being caught.

The rest is classic and I won't spoil it any more except to say; if you love classical music or comedy or political satire or John Cleese (or naked women or John's bottom), then you will love this movie.
