Funny Story about the Apes, People and the Genie
27 January 2007 | by theatrum-1See all my reviews

This movie is an attempt at ethical comedy. Iť's a modern variation of Arabic tale about the genie from the bottle (of gin) which takes place in the small Czech town in the seventies. This wonderful bottle with this magical man appears among common people of the 20th century. Dishonest citizens (e. g. butcher and inn-holder who swindle) force the genie to make unfair things, but there are also pure men who act correctly (e. g. student Petr). The film is very schematic and the final impression is negative (akwardness typical for the movies by Milan Muchna), but there are a line of funny moments and good performances: e. g. excellent Josef Kemr as the genie.
