Based on the legendary novel by Czech humorist Jaroslav Hasek, The Good Soldier Schweik mixes slapstick and satire to stand alongside Catch 22 and M*A*S*H as a riotous commentary on the absurdity of war. Acclaimed Czech actor Rudolf Hrusinsky stars as the cheerful Schweik, a good-natured buffoon with a story for every occasion. After getting drafted into the Czech army during WWI, Schweik becomes an assistant to high-ranking military officials, and unwittingly wreaks havoc on the leaders of the 91st infantry. In Czech with English subtitles.
