I must say that this movie makes me laugh whenever I see it.
15 May 2000 | by (Praha, Czech republic) – See all my reviews

Where to start with my commentary. All actors are perfect. When you see Zdenek Sverak who is a brilliant screenwriter (much better screenwriter than an actor) and compare him to the excellent work of Daniela Kolarova and Josef Kemr you nearly lose the differences between the professional actors and amateur actors. But the most interesting, thrilling thing about this film are its jokes. We can begin before the titles come when son asks his father if an earthworm is a snake. The joyful conversation starts you up and it continues...
