I served the great deals on Earrings king of england Credits:Directed by jiri menzel and starring julia jentsch, oldrich kaiser, martin huba, ivan barnev, marian labuda and milan lasica. Details: (M), 120 mins, Czech Republic, Synopsis:Jan dite(Oldrich kaiser)Is released from prison having served most of his 15-Year sentence and is sent to work on mountain roads in the sudeten region.He reflects on his life, from his first job selling hot dogs at a railway station, to becoming the head waiter in the top hotel in prague.The german invasion of sudetenland brings young liza(Julia jentsch)Into his life and he easily trades any patriotic feelings for the opportunity to better himself.Oblivious to the political changes, and thanks to a valuable stamp collection 'left behind' by a family of jews, jan becomes a millionaire and buys the resort he once worked at. Genres:Comedy, romance, war After observing the 1961 trial of nazi adolf eichmann, philosopher hannah arendt coined the phrase"The banality of evil".It was, after all, menzel's seminal and unforgettable closely observed trains(1966)Which helped to bring the czech new wave to the attention of the world.But you don't have to be a student of cinema to appreciate the warmth and gently subversive humanism of i served the king of england.Menzel's films can charm anybody. The film's hero, jan dite(A perky performance from ivan barnev), is the classic little man on the make.He is a waiter in a very grand 1930s hotel in prague and, with his manual dexterity and sure sense of how to read a situation always outwits his boss and gets a good tip into the bargain.Czechoslovakia, however, is also a country much interfered with and menzel, as he did before, takes from bohumil hrabal's novel the chance to explore the darker side of foreign occupation and power.What makes the film even more interesting is that the light, fast-Paced farce of the early stages gives way, via a love story, to something more tragicomic.As the film progresses, we also see that jan is all too human, as his attempts to thrive and survive in war time lead him into the error of collaborationism. The film's Links of London Rings interiors are gorgeous but it also contains a very wide palette of humour, from satire to sight gags.At times, jan seems like a little blonde czech chaplin, with perfect slapstick to match.Menzel also harks back to his new wave roots with the strategic inclusion of subversive nudity.All in all, this is a treat for fans of jiri menzel and newcomers alike. Fast paced scenes and slapstick wildness only add to the warmth and the meaning of this exploration of military occupation.
