Storyline

A tragicomedy full of slapstick and vignettes, and even an unexpected shootout. A family of villagers moves up in the world - to the county seat. Dad works as a butcher at a meatpacking plant, mom is a checker at a supermarket. The daughter is at odds with her homeroom teacher, while the son - a vegetarian, anarchist, and avid pothead - is apprenticing as a butcher to please his father. The kid's in hot water with both his forewoman and the police. But dad isn't much of an example, letting himself be tempted by the charms of a lovely young butcher. However much mom tries - visiting the beauty parlor, her psychologist, or even the confessional - her husband shows his interest by moving out. Mom plots revenge. And somehow an imp gets mixed up in it all... Written by Anonymous

Something different
16 June 2007 | by jgzieglerSee all my reviews

Skritek, which means 'Gremlin' in English (dwarf is trpaslik) is worth watching, as it is something quite different. All of the other posts are right in their descriptions, although if you do know Czech you can tell exactly what they are saying, but that isn't important because you can figure it out anyway. Good film, especially if you want something different.

This is also a pretty funny film to watch under the influence of mind altering substances. Especially since it deals with this subject. I would recommend seeing it sober as well, but it always helps when you watch a film like this.
