The Cimrman theater revealed
1 August 2004 | by rocekSee all my reviews

In this reconstructed documentary, the Cimrman troupe faces absurd censors, unreasonable deadlines, and inadequate facilities as they rehearse and perform one of their masterpieces, "Visionar" (literally "Visionary"). For those who speak Czech and are somewhat familiar with Czech culture and recent history, this is a hilarious and even moving satire by two authors (Sverak and Smoljak) who repeatedly explain that they can't do satire. For those who don't have this background, let me just explain that Cimrman is a fictitious Czech genius from the turn of the last century whose plays (all written by Sverak and Smoljak) have had over 10,000 performances, who is cited by Czech politicians, and is the funniest Czech literary creation since Svejk.
