Movie Info

The life's blood of the titular community is a collective farm. Marian Labuda is the farm's truck driver, and also the partner-protector of Janos Ban, who is the village idiot. Like everyone else in the village, Labuda has watched out for Ban and covered up his mistakes, but in recent weeks the situation has become intolerable and Labuda demands a new partner. As Ban prepares to be relocated to Prague, we cut away to various subplots, all of which lead to the same conclusion: the hapless Ban has always been the "glue" that has held the community together. A contrite Labuda heads for Prague to invite Ban to come back home. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Vesnicko Má Stredisková (My Sweet Little Village)


An endlessly delicious and hilarious comedy with a wonderful cinematography and a large gallery of adorable characters living in a little Czech village (each with their own adorable peculiarity), relying also on a truly magnificent performance by János Bán.
