What are people saying?

  • anthony's rating of the film Jára Cimrman Lying, Sleeping

    a man that doesn't exist secretly inciting major events in European history. lines blurred between fiction and history, art and reality. an idea straight out of Borges, a deconstruction of Eurocentrism, a cultural expression that could've only come from this country. above all else, unbelievably funny. to other foreigners living in Prague, you'd do well to research Cimrman and check this movie out.
