That movie is an absolute comedy. Bolek Polivka, big star of Czech film and theater scene does more than good job and seems it would not function without him. He's got indeed a villager's style, always holding a plum brandy bottle in hands. To my dismay I must admit that other actors are not very good, most of them cant be seen very often in good movies (Ok, M.Donutil is very good). But doesn't matter. The film shows a story about sudden getting huge amount of money, unexpectedly inherited. This event makes up the main plot. I recommend that movie to everybody. Im sure that kind of that humor is versatile, suitable for everybody. This movie means a lot for Czechs or Slovaks, they consider it to be a cult one. It has not been probably overcome by any other Czech or Slovak comedy. I can say thats also a challenge for (mainly) Slovak cinematography, which gets stuck last couple of years.
