Czech Dream (2003)

Czech Dream



Critic Consensus: Czech Dream induces laughs, cheers, and squirms as these pranksters slyly attempt to pull a fast one on media corporations.

Movie Info

The Czech Republic's growing pains in regards to its relatively recently acquired capitalist system is highlighted by this study of two film students who use their state grant to promote the opening of an entirely fictitious supermarket in an empty field - and film the hoopla surrounding the "opening".

Let's encourage people to make fools of themselves -- then mock them when they act foolishly!

A small but droll big-box comedy.

It's obviously more fun to watch Czech Dream than it was to experience the deception firsthand.

The film wavers between nervous dread for the unsuspecting public and sheer gall at the number of consultants who agreed to help sell something nonexistent (for money, of course).

How easy [the capitalist] appetite is to stimulate is demonstrated in the cheeky documentary Czech Dream.

Audience Reviews for Czech Dream

I was fascinated. I am not certain of the real purpose of the film by these students of the art. I am not Czech nor European. Relatively young to the capitalistic idea of this modern world. Just shows the power that advertising has. I thought it ironic that the one ad that is placed in the poster bin at the end of the movie to replace "Czech Dream" was a Master Card ad, PRICELESS!
