Comedy about young students
10 July 2002 | by (Prague, Europe) – See all my reviews

It's a kind of poetic comedy. No horrors, no killers, no action, just normal life of a young student. It's a bit romantical, but not so much. It pleases you heart. You can really feel like the main hero and his friends. There are four movies in this series, this is the second chronologically, but maybe the best of them.
