Movie Info

This highly-charged political satire from Czechoslovakia was banned for 20 years. It is the chronicle of a miserable marriage between a provincial bureaucrat and the boozy daughter of a pub-owner who find trouble when they learn through the grapevine that one of the husband's superior's has been arrested. Now the husband fears that a major purge is in the offing. Their fears are not allayed by the fact that their house keys have disappeared, nor can they shake the feeling that someone is watching them. Things don't get any better when they finally get into the house and find signs that someone has been in there. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

...Stephen Sachs - working from his eponymous play - slowly but surely manages to infuse the proceedings with a surprisingly even-handed sensibility.

There's not a more acerbic, scathing or compelling critique of the Communist regime.
