Capricious Summer (Czech: Rozmarné léto) is a 1968 Czechoslovak comedy film directed by Jiří Menzel. It is based on the novel Rozmarné léto (Summer of Caprice) by the Czech writer Vladislav Vančura. It was listed to compete at the 1968 Cannes Film Festival,[1] but the festival was cancelled due to the events of May 1968 in France.

The film depicts a humorous story of three men, a colonel, a priest and a bath-keeper, during rainy summer days.
