Excellent comedy
5 March 2007 | by duowcewySee all my reviews

This is a real rarity - a film that totally skewers the centrally-controlled system. The basic premise - to me - is how does a system that wants to control everyone and everything from gardens to belief in God deal with a phenomenon that contradicts their view of reality. Based on a real Czech folk legend (the White Lady being Perchta of Rozemberk) the film quickly takes off in some great directions. Hrusinsky, Bohdalova, Kopecsky and Brodsky are excellent, as is the rest of the cast. It took a while for me to get a hold of this one on DVD but it was well worth the wait. I rank this with other mid-60's Czech subversive films like Firemen's Ball and Who Wants to Kill Jessie?.
