Truly classical Czech movie
2 February 2004 | by (Prague) – See all my reviews

This movie (and its sequel) is a best adaptation of the classical Czech book The Good Soldier Svejk to date. True to the book with the best Czech actors this adaptation just can't be bested. Story follows the mishaps of the simpleminded soldier Svejk in the beginning of the 1st World War and points out the stupidity of the government and army. True movie gem.
