Storyline

Life of Czechoslovak soldiers in a military unit for the so called "politically unreliable" - the Technical auxiliary battalions, aka "the black barons". Although it might seem like a political satire and it's mostly funny, it shows the reality and the absurdity of military service under the communist regime. Based on a novel by Miloslav Svandrlik.

Political Jokes.
7 February 2003 | by DukeEmanSee all my reviews

Czechoslovakia 1956 and another five year plan takes effect with the creation of the unit, Black Barrons. These soldiers don't carry arms nor fight but are a unit which will help the building of a new nation. The unit is made up of poets, noblemen, film makers and thieves. Each with a hang up and a dislike for their foolish generals. This film takes a swipe at the political system of the time with humorous moments. But it wears out by the end of it all.
