    A rumbustious glimpse into the interaction between a clutch of Czech households immediately before the Prague Spring of 1968 does a clever job of showing the personal is impacted upon by the political but is also full of the absurd humour that is so characcteristic of the country's artistic output. There are some cringey (but brilliant) moments where a man goes off one one about the difference between dumplings and gnocchi as well as a bizarre attempt to match the height of a kodiak bear. The Christmas decorations take a beating.

    A reminder of the old Soviet times, how naive we were, how little politics was in our lives.

    The politics are great, but it is one of those films where everyone is supposed to be cute and quirky, but the adults come off as clownish and the kids come off as snotty.

    If you need one lession on czech humour it could well be this movie: it's jokes, the plot and the satiric characters. Still human and understanding. And the Prague Spring ending of the movie is tantalizingly reflective one.
