Obsluhoval jsem anglického krále

Jiří Menzel Czech Republic, 2006

Cid Medeiros's rating of the film I Served the King of England

A witty comedy with a cynic approach on the most important issues for men: money, power and young women. The storytelling jokes on human condition, capitalism, nazism as well as the life of the main character which is portrayed as a series of situation frames.The openness on so sensitive issues brought some sarcasm to the narrative. The cinematography deserves to be quoted due to the amazing scenarios it produced.
