Storyline

Twist of fate and the twists of mind of the characters (mostly couples) combine in just the right twinkled absurd way in the interweaving episodes of this comedy. Each of the characters gets a good shot at being sarcastic and each is a sorry loser at some point yet none is turned into the butt of the joke. The place is Prague and the time is August 6th, 1995, except for one episode, set 50 years earlier in unflyable rain in the city of Kokura, Japan. Written by David Hakim <hakim@sos.ethz.ch>

Good one
29 November 2008 | by (Kyiv, Ukraine) – See all my reviews

Very good movie, while watching it I remember "Night on earth" and "Mistery train". its all movies the same class and quality. There is nothing to add about how well-done, meaningful and multidimensional Knoflikari is. As bonus we can see there as actor probably the most famous modern Prague sculptor, author of Black Babies on Žižkov Television Tower, St Vaclav on dead horse, 2 men pissing on Czech republic and others. I bought this DVD only for getting first impression about modern Czech cinema and I think it was one of the best possible choice. As for me, last segment about ghost of American pilot was a bit of childish and primitive in Hollywood happy-end style, but maybe it's what Czech guy means about black Czech humor?
