A dark comedy about a "kid" of our times. The American Dream, Czech-style. Everybody would like to glide through life and come into money so easily. It's not always that simple, though. Czechmademan is one of the few unique peeks back at the past two decades of Czech freedom. The movie is based on the narrative of a Czech multimillionaire who achieved success not by stripping companies, making crooked deals and crony-ism, but by blazing his own trail like Schweikesque self-made man. He realizes early on that he has nobody but himself to rely on. During the totalitarian regime of the 80s, he ambles along his oddball path and then experiences the Velvet Revolution atypically, too - in an asylum amidst nut-cases. After the Revolution, he really gets rolling. To Germany and back. To prison and back. To China and back.

very good, but not perfect.
11 August 2011 | by pietror_seSee all my reviews

It would be simply perfect, with 3 exceptions: - Very deep colorization is a powerful tool, but should have continuity. Changing the color tones without reason is disturbing - On the beginning is one special shot (involving the accordion), which will tell how it will end – which is a major spoiler for me - Typical Czech end, where movie cannot end with negative emotions and we must add something, even if it doesn't adds to the story

The story was IMO very good, it wasn't quite clear where it will move in the next minute/cut. Camera was very good, especially those quick/slow motions, which has added to the pacing. For a natural Czech language watcher, there was a problem with a casting, where some characters which should have no knowledge of Czech language, one can hear Czech accent – sometimes. Details, but masterpiece is made of details. That's why only 7/10 (and considering it was movie from my era)
