One of Heinz's best and funniest movies
17 November 2000 | by (Nottingham, England) – See all my reviews

I have the video of this movie and can watch it over and over again. I speak and understand German. The outstanding moments are: 1. When Schwejk loses his way after being thrown off the train for pulling the "communication cord" - he goes around in circles then finds his way back to where he accidentally left his tobacco pouch. His comment "Alles hat sein tiefen Sinn" is "goldich" 2. When a sniper shoots his pipe from his mouth, and Schwejk shouts to the effect "You might have killed someone!" 3. When he arranges with his friend to meet at "half-past six after the war". The whole film has me curled up laughing, although the anti-war moral is quite serious.
