Directed by V?ra Chytilová | 1992
With Bolek Polívka, Miroslav Donutil, Anna Pant??ková
This wildly irreverent comedy—in which an irredeemably lazy, hard-drinking country bumpkin becomes an overnight millionaire and industrialist—lampoons the country’s transition from communism to capitalism with gleeful bad taste. Combining slapstick visual gags with swipes at Czech racism and misogyny, Chytilová fashions a riotous satire that has gone on to become a cult classic in its home country.
