I admit to never having viewed this DVD, but since it is up in the queue, and I looked at the description and comments, I would state that comedies or charming stories about WWII and Nazi-occupied countries are really perverse and bizarre, and makes violence and war more acceptable in a subtle fashion. All the Czech innocents who were massacred by Himmler's SS after the Czech uprising, the 40,000 Poles who are executied after the Polish uprising, should dispell any notion of charming times during those days!

A charming story about the occupation of a Czech village during WWII. The characters, especially the couple and their 'roommate', are delightful. The circumstances and situation are, naturally, extremely difficult, but there is a lightness to it that makes it a very good film. I highly recommend it.

Pardon the pun, but I recommend you Czech this one out. The beginning seemed a little crowded with tangents, but stick with the story and the ending will tie up all those loose ends. I five star loved it. The description hardly does it justice.
