Originally banned by the Czech government and then later submitted as that country’s official contender for the 1969 Best Foreign Film Oscar, Milos Forman’s rip-roaring parody on the foibles of Communist rule packs more sarcastic merriment into 75 minutes than most films twice its length. Stressing the importance of goodness, kindness, and…solidarity…this is an acerbic and unrelenting lampoon aimed directly at Moscow by way of Prague. Very funny!

Don't let the fact that this is a Czech movie with subtitles scare you off. The Firemen's Ball is a brilliant slapstick & black comedy that's sure to get tons of laughs. The political communist satire only heightens the fun.
