It is an amusing comedy about Hrabal's parents
16 June 2007 | by (Gambia) – See all my reviews

This film is a comedy about how the writer Hrabal was born. The movie takes

place in a small town where Hrabal's father is in charge of a brewery.

The blessing and at the same time the bane of his life is his wonderful wife.

Blessing, because she is not only beautiful but she is resourceful and

intelligent and lively, bane all other man in the little town man would like to get

to know her better. The story is a kind of nostalgia, but is still

amusing tale, with not much tension and thriller, but still worth to watch…

(If you have a good copy of it...)

At a time – I think – in the eighties the film won a some prize in a Film Festival, in Europe
