    Film tchèque réalisé en noir et blanc, tourné du 16 avril au 21 juin 1968, avec une première en salles le 10 janvier 1969 pour être interdit en cours d'année, cette farce tragi-comique met en évidence une certaine mainmise étatique freinant toute initiative personnelle considérée comme contraire à la stricte et rigide orthodoxie communiste... www.cinefiches.com
