Obsluhoval jsem anglického krále

Jiří Menzel Czech Republic, 2006

msmichel's rating of the film I Served the King of England

In 2006 Jiri Menzel added another strong entry to his body of work with this tongue in cheek story of a Czech looking back on his youth and his experiences through WWII which eventually led him to imprisonment. A study of manners, greed, selfishness and the political winds of change. Ranks amongst Menzel's best ( 'Closely Watched Trains', 'My Sweet Little Villiage', 'Larks on a String').
