Storyline

The film Sunday League is set just before the beginning of the TV series Okresni prebor (2010)). The film's story takes us back in time to Houslice and everything is once again centered around the local Slavoj football club, its players, functionaries and, primarily, its coach Pepik Hnátek. Pepik Hnátek (Miroslav Krobot) is a big man in Houslice. The authoritative coach is an indispensable strategist of the district football scene and the soul of the entire club. Football means everything to him which is something his wife finds hard to accept, but it is his heart that is affected the most and after years of stress and nervous exertion it is slowly beginning to give up. So far the obstinate Hnátek has been successfully hiding this fact from everyone, but when his heart is hit by its seventeenth heart attack the experienced coach will have to decide whether to choose life or football. Hnátek, quite logically, chooses football. Written by Czech film center

Top of Czech comedy
22 December 2012 | by See all my reviews

Czech comedy after 1989 got into a trap of losing themes. Suddenly the movie makers and mostly screenwriters couldn't find a platform on which they could make fun of ourselves. One of the few exceptions was for a long time the movie Dedictvi and now Okresni prebor is in my opinion the second one. It found the ground on which it can stand a mirror and gently in a hilariously funny way show us who we are. Without mocking us! Prusinovsky (writer/director) obviously knows the environment of village football club and very skilfully and accurately depicted the scene. All the characters are very believable in their ordinariness and we can rely to them. The movie paints them with poetic colors and brings us laughs through ordinary situations which we know from our lives yet when we see them on the screen we can laugh heartily as knowing observers.

I don't know whether people from other countries can appreciate this movie but I guess that's a characteristic of all good Czech comedies (they're very specific). I think it's not necessary to know the series that preceded the movie but in my opinion the viewer will have more from the movie when he'll know the series. On the other hand it can also be vice versa.

I definitely recommend this movie to everyone and I personally rank it among such classics as Dedictvi a Vesnicko ma strediskova. It has the same poetry and approach to Czech nature.
