Like Stephan-fish, I enjoyed the film very much, although I think there is a little too much slapping toward the end. But I am not sure it shows scenes of the poor Czech country after the revolution, unless the revolution meant is the one that took place in February 1948. The film was shot in the summer of 1988 (you can even see a calendar in the cooperative's office) and the velvet revolution took place in November 1989. The jokes about the communist regime are rather innocent, or very subtle. I would say the story takes place in a country which did not really exist. The important part taken by the village parson is surprising, although of course religion is shown, as befitted the regime, as a matter for old people.
