Audience Reviews for One Hand Can't Clap (Jedna ruka netleska)

½

This dark comedy directed by David Ondricek was one of the more popular movies in that part of the world 10 years ago. Won few awards, and the audience loved it... This is not a complicated movie with profound mission - simple humour, some morbid scenes, few laughs - could describe it all! The plot is about an innocent guy who goes to jail for something he didn't do it, and after coming out of it waits for the payment promised by the boss who put him in that situation in the first place. Everything goes smoothly, until a new friend shows up... At moments I found this comedy truly bizarre but witty... Somehow, the screenwriters and the director managed to keep everything connected. Slow introduction starts speeding up that at the end we have a culmination with the most insane outburst you can imagine! The actors are excellent, especially Ivan Trojan, and I could not find too many faults with the film itself... but there was a connection missing while I was watching. I think that the main reason is the Czech humour which is by its very nature dark and often uncompromising, but you could always find a naive and warm sentiment behind it. Maybe the local audience found it more appealing. But I will say it is funny, I could not deny that! If you re fan of dark comedy which is mostly unkind and deals with the less lovable sides of human beings, but underneath it all there is a beautiful story full of promise, good intent and optimism - try this.
