The Good Soldier Schweik (Der Brave Soldat Schwejk)
Based on the legendary novel by Czech humorist Jaroslav Hasek, Good Soldier Schweik stands alongside Catch 22 and MASH as a riotous satire on the futility of war. In this absurdist comedy, the dim-witted Schweik (Heinz Ruhmann), a less-than-willing participant in the Austrian Army during World War I, doesn't exactly take his place alongside such heroes as Napoleon, but he eventually does triumph ... sort of. Karel Stekly directs.
