Not so bad at all
13 August 2005 | by (Czech Republic) – See all my reviews

Well, I don't know the original play the film is based upon so I can't compare, but the film surprised me very much. I didn't expect much amusement (after many critical reviews), on the contrary - I was a little worried. You know, many many Czech films tend to be something more then they really are, but the result is often awkward and you as a viewer are ashamed, instead. But, I'm happy to say it: Mazaný Filip was funny! And I definitely cannot agree with those who say that the performances were bad! (especially Vilma Cibulkova as the diva Velma was super - as in every movie of hers) and the art direction got me as well. Compared with majority of Czech film production, Mazany Filip is without a doubt one of the best made ones and who says it isn't, they probably belong to the above mentioned category of pseudo-intellectuals. It's definitely worth seeing.
