Trivia

Although in the credits are listed two directors, 'Kulový blesk' was in fact standalone debut of Ladislav Smoljak. According to Smoljak, Zdenek Podskalský only backed his project with his name as so-called directing supervisor because Barrandov Studios was afraid to entrust the feature film into hands of inexperienced director.

Ready, steady, move!
6 September 2000 | by (Cape Town, South Africa) – See all my reviews



Housing is still a major problem in the Czech Republic. If you have a flat, you are OK, the rent is controlled and thus relatively cheap, but if you don't, you have virtually no chance of getting one. Unless you pay an enormous amount for one of the very few newly built flats - quite out of proportion with your local salary. Also, if you move out or die and a relative is not already registered as living with you, the flat might be lost! One way for ordinary people who need to move is to swap flats.

The film called "The Ball Lightning", made years ago in the old communist Czechoslovakia, takes this idea to the extreme. Why not move a number of households in a circular fashion at the same time? Of course, it requires a lot of organising and a lot of goodwill on all sides. Anything can go wrong and it does! What if somebody changes his mind, the whole scheme collapses!

Quite an easy way to make a comedy. Despite efforts by some excellent actors, this one is not the greatest.
