ironic parable, it is a movie about survive in war time. in dark colors, with interesting characters, mixture of ash and sand, puzzle of stories, cynic, precise, harsh, bitter, Rubick cube of times and events, kind of Lord of flies without children but with same kind of men, a form of alternate history and game with possibilities of an alternative history, Josef is just slice of East recent past. because the war can be Jugoslavian or Chechenian. because crumbs of brave Svejk are pieces for every intention to present realities out of appearances in this case. because Josef is lesson of a jester. the memorable last meeting is relevant in this sense. his essence - the relativity of personal identity in every war, in every season.
