Summary "A manifesto of sorts for the Czech New Wave, this five-part anthology shows off the breadth of expression and the versatility of the movement's directors. Based on the stories by the legendary writer, Bohumil Hrabal, the shorts range from the surreally chilling to the caustically observant to the casually romantic, but all have a cutting, wily view of the world"--Container.
Smrt pana Baltazara = Mr. Baltazar's death: A group of aimless, nostalgia-inclined folks gather from far and wide to watch a motorcycle race.
Podvodníci = The imposters: Two old men in a hospital talk about their younger days, boasting of their professional accomplishments.
Dům radosti = The house of joy: Two life and funeral insurance salesmen visit an outsider artist.
Automat svět = The restaurant of the world: Centers on a wedding celebration in a café where surreal happenings occur.
Romance: Focuses on a flirtation between a handsome young Czechoslovakian plumber and a Gypsy teenager.
