Movie vs reality
5 December 2015 | by petrsvSee all my reviews

This movie is short comedy, but...it is try to evoke tricky effect about Czech procedure during asylum process for refugees. It is absurdity. Penile plethysmography (PPG) - instrument, that Czech Professor Kurt Freund had been using for scientific study of homosexuality in 50's in Czechoslovakia. Thanks to his study homosexuality was decriminalized in Czechoslovakia in 1961. Similar legal status of homosexuality was in Germany in 1968 (East) and 1969 (West). Thanks to Kurt's study recruits could have been exempt from military service in 50's. Professor Freund had emigrated to Canada in 1968, where he went on with his work and study with PPG. The Kurt Freund Laboratory at Clarke Institute of Psychiatry in Toronto is named after him. So, PPG was instrument for scientific in last century. Not nowadays, not in Czech Republic, not for refugees.
