Pretty good Czech comedy.
1 December 2000 | by (Akron, Ohio.) – See all my reviews

Basically, I've never seen anything quite like this. Plot concerns the future, in which women sprout facial hair but can't have children because of radiation or something, and the only way to stop it is to go back into time and kill Einstein. There are some good laughs along the way and the film is pretty good. I won't give away too much because this is certainly one of the most interesting films I've had the chance to see (not to mention I haven't seen it in a long time and can't remember a lot of details). Pretty good Czech comedy worth watching.
