Probably the best Czech movie I've seen this year. Alois Svehlik was a great substitute for Jan Triska and his wisdom sounded very credible and truthful. The movie will make the viewer really think about the truths of life.Visual was also OK, I liked the soundtrack and there was the tension kept me watching the movie without interruption. In addition, there was many funny scenes. For me it's basically all the movie should have.
