"Mitte der 50er Jahre. Der Schrottplatz eines Hüttenkombinats bei Kladno dient als Umerziehungslager für "bourgeoise Elemente" und Feinde des Systems. Die einstigen Werte - vom Christus am Kreuz bis zur Schreibmaschine - werden zu Maschinen für den sozialistischen Aufbau umgeschmolzen. [...] Ein zwischen poetischer Gestaltung, überzeugender humaner Parteinahme und folkloristischen Momenten angelegtes filmisches Meisterwerk, das mit subtil-subversivem Humor die Fassaden von Politik und Ideologie durchlöchert. Virtuos verbinden sich bissige politische Kommentare mit warmherziger Sympathie für die Menschen." []

Por este motivo, todos son responsables de Otik, un joven retrasado que vive solo. Dentro de esta estructura solidaria, Otik trabaja como ayudante de Pávek, conductor de un camión. Tras una larga temporada juntos, Pávek decide prescindir de su compañero, pues es demasiado despistado y le da más problemas que alegrías. Otro vecino del pueblo deberá admitir al joven como ayudante. A este problema se le suma otro: alguien está intentado apropiarse de la casa de Otik sin que éste se dé cuenta. Los ciudadanos y el director de la cooperativa deberán encontrar solución a estos asuntos, mientras a su alrededor se van sucediendo los accidentes de coche de un médico hedonista, enamoramientos juveniles, y adulterios.

Set in Prague during the Nazi occupation, this film follows Karl Kopfrkingl, a man who works in a crematorium. Kopfrkingl is obsessed with his work, and believes that death is a release from suffering, and that by incinerating corpses he is in fact liberating their souls. The coming of the Nazis pushes his eccentricity into madness, perverting his already twisted ambitions and offering him the opportunity to live out his fantasies in horrifying fashion. Kopfrkingl takes to the Nazi ideal with frightening ease, perverting his own beliefs as he comes to view himself as a saviour of mankind, at great cost to those around him, particularly his family

Baron Prášil = The adventures of Baron Munchausen( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in Czech and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1961, Karel Zeman made the finest film adaptation of the outlandish tales of Baron Munchausen, made famous in the 1786 book by Gottfried August Bürger. The incredible adventures of the bragging Baron come to life in a film celebrating the courage and imagination of dreamers and poets. Zeman took inspiration from the engravings in the 1862 edition, the work of one of the greatest illustrators of the 19th century Gustave Doré. The director achieved a visually captivating style by color-tinting the original black and white footage. In the movie, Munchausen's humorous narrative contrasts with the romantic tale of a modern fantasist Tony, who becomes the good Baron's rival in love."--Container
