Storyline

Comedy about the people who inhabit a small town. For years the overbearing Pavek has endured Otik, the "town idiot," sharing his meals and the front seat of their dump truck. But Otik is such a sweet-natured fool that Pavek, exasperated as he becomes, always relents on his threats to find another partner. This Laurel and Hardy-like pair are at the heart of a comedy which finds humor in an abundance of everyday situations. The town doctor regularly wrecks his car because he's admiring the scenery, a romantic teenager develops a hopeless crush on his sister's schoolteacher, and an adulterous housewife and her boyfriend are just one step ahead of her suspicious, hot-headed husband.

Anti-Communism / Pro-Community
31 March 2005 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

My sweet little village is just that. A story about the people who live and die in a small village outside of Prague. In more ways than one, this is a story about living in a country where the form of government is communism. By the end of the movie, communism fails to effect the outcome of many of the lives in the village. Although this is a comedy at times, the movie falls into many dramatic pits where you wonder what is going to happen next. The brotherhood between many characters shows the village as more of a family than just a small town of people. There is more than jut one story in this movie. The main story is the village, but the plot is about the handful of lives that inhabit the village and how they effect one another. A pure delight.
