King Ubu

Král Ubu

Directed by F. A. Brabec
Czech Republic, 1997
Avant-Garde, Drama, Comedy


A cruel picture of the ways in which human beings acquire power and then cling to it. The story of Father Ubu, an idiot who climbs over the bodies of the dead to his royal post, is presented with a touch of the grotesque where naive comic elements meet black humor.
