Juraj Herz's attempt at depicting the expulsion of Germans from Sudetenland is indeed a bold move and should find its way to grammar schools. As it displays German and Czech kins in perfectly contemporary outfits indulging in some of the finest examples of post-war misbehaviour, the director had incorporated as many explanatory comments into dialogues as possible, presumably for the sake of the international audience. That made the plot lucid enough for the Chinese and almost indigestible for anyone remotely familiar with the 2WW. (With due respect to all Chinese - why does a Czech ranger share his first ever musings about Hitler to his best German buddy ONLY at the height of Anschluss? Several years after the crisis began??) Having said that, the piece may not be as far-out as, say, Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows.
