The fire department in a small town is organising a big party to celebrate the 80th birthday of the ex-boss. The whole town is invited but things don’t quite go to plan. A sensitive and very funny film which is a milestone in Czech cinema.

it’s the best work Forman’s done, rooted in a social reality that has eluded him in his American projects, and directed with a nonlinear suppleness that suggests the formal achievement of Jacques Tati.” Chicago Reader
