A wonderful film. Of course, it's more enjoyable for those who lived in Czechoslovakia in the 80s, but the movies does have a universal appeal, as well. It deals with a difficult and complex time with humor, yet retains a realistic feel. I highly recommend this movie.
Plot: The film follows two families living in Prague during the 1980s. Each family deals with living in the Communist system in different ways, trying to survive as best they can while still remaining true to themselves.
