Storyline

In 1968, Czechoslovakia is on the verge of a revolution, and Polish troops are sent into the country to put down the insurgence. Romek is a Polish soldier who has been having an affair with the wife of his commanding officer. While Romek believes the officer is unaware of the infidelity, he senses that his cover has been blown when he's assigned to roll across the Czech border in a broken-down old tank that barely runs. As Romek and his comrades make their way into Czechoslovakia, they get lost. Things get worse when they crash into a small town tavern, where many of the locals are throwing a party for the local postmaster. The arrival of Romek and his fellow Poles is not welcomed with enthusiasm by the Czechs. But when the soldiers realize their tank is not going anywhere, they convince some of the locals to help them.

Fraternal intervention
6 March 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In August 1968 Polish troops- along with those of the U.S.S.R.and assorted other countries intervened- as they put it- in Czechoslovakia to prevent a hypothetical counter-revolution. This is the story of one obsolete tank and its crew...

It isn't a very good film, unfortunately. National stereotypes abound- the Poles are obsessed with "honour" and- as one of them says and the film shows- they leave a mess behind everywhere they go; the Czechs are obsessed with making deals and surviving and the Russians- who appear briefly and murderously- are glass-chewing violent drunks. Most of the film is slapstick, which makes the odd realistic violence arbitrary and inappropriate without being moving. At a guess, it's an attempt to do something similar to Kusturica's surreal combination of farce, romance and drama in Underground, but the director lacks Kusturica's skills in camera-work and the film seems arbitrary and earth-bound. In the end, most of the tank crew with their recently-acquired girlfriends try to escape to Vienna and freedom in the tank.
