Trivia

Zdenek Sverák wrote the main role of fake waiter Dalibor Vrána with skilled comedian Petr Nározný in his mind. Director Ladislav Smoljak cast Josef Abrhám instead, because Nározný was typecast as hysterical hothead at the time. Director was afraid of disappointing the expectations of the audience. See more »

Enjoyable comedy from a different time
8 December 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Like one of the previous reviewers, I was lucky enough to catch this gem of a film on a coach trip to Prague when I was living in the Czech Republic. It was the first Czech film I saw, and is still my favourite. Of course anyone who didn't grow up under communism will miss a lot of the humour and references, but generally speaking it has a wide-ranging appeal, and the convoluted situations are really funny at times, especially the incidents with his neighbour. The music is good too - mostly man-and-a-guitar type songs. I wish it were possible to find this in Britain, but foreign language films are a tiny market here, especially obscure communist-era East European films... Overall though, this is thoroughly recommended and if you're ever in Czech on a yellow Student Agency coach make sure they show this!
