Good comedy from early communist times in Czechoslovakia
These times were really bad. Communist party was the only party that ruled in that times in Czechoslovakia. Due to Marx-Lenin ideas, workers were the only good people. Every young man with rich ancestors or anti-communist ideas had to serve in 'black barons' instead of regular army troops. But this movie makes it funny. These so called good people, who were the leaders of 'black barons' military troops, were mostly stupid.
Very good comedy, I think. I had to laugh again and again.
