Feydeau, with a Czech accent
18 April 2008 | by rangus02See all my reviews

I don't know when I've laughed so often or so loud as I did while watching this flick for the first time. Even without English subtitles (and I don't speak Czech) I was in stitches practically from the beginning. It is, of course, even funnier WITH subtitles. A sort of Feydeau farce with a Czech accent, in which the principals are forever hopping into and out of each others' clothes in frantic efforts to hide their identities in the closing days of World War II as a small band of Germans struggles to make it back to the Fatherland before they are shot by Czech patriots---including some collaborators trying to pass themselves off as patriots. It's really great fun, beautifully acted, photographed and directed.
