I Served the King of England

 

Czech filmmaker Jiri Menzel, who made his mark on the international movie scene in 1967 with his debut production Closely Watched Trains, offers another film based on a novel by renowned Czech author Bohumil Hrabal. The black comedy about a small man, a waiter (played by both Ivan Barnev and Oldrich Kaiser), who mostly operates under the radar and dreams of becoming a millionaire hotelier in 1930s Czechoslovakia, is quirky, surreal, lilting and grim, sometimes all in the same scene. A lot of this curious little feature plays like a silent movie-style comedy. 120 minutes. DVD INFO: No extras included.
