Directed by Miloš Forman. The Oscar-winning director of One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest and Amadeus concocts a sharp and funny satire on petty bureaucracy. The final feature made in Forman’s native Czechoslovakia, it chronicles a provincial firemen’s ball (including a beauty pageant and prize raffle) that goes horribly awry. (Czechoslovakia, 1967, subtitles, color, 35mm, 73 min.)
