Excellent, but badly translated to English
14 April 2006 | by (Czech Republic) – See all my reviews

I found the movie to be a very good satire on all those lame old mafia bits in the past. It's very well done through a different than usual point of view. Some may not understand a lot of it due to the lousy English translation of it. But that's of course due to the fact that Czechs have very little resources when it comes to proper English. They use a twisted book form of British learning which is dead end, out of date slang. I blame that one on the Brits and their misconception of what should be known as English. They seem to teach it, but, as we know, those who can't, teach. If it helps, spend some time to learn Czech, and even take a visit to the country, and you'll understand the true greatness of this movie, I sure did.
