Smrt krásnych srncu (1987)
Set in 1930s Czechoslovakia, this is a colourful, not to say eccentric portrait of a Jewish chancer-cum-dreamer. Having landed a job as a travelling Electrolux salesman, our hero transplants his family from country to city, refines the tricks of the trade, plays away, still brings home the bacon (woodland roe deer seem his only taboo), but pours the best part of his new wealth into a giant carp pond. He keeps balanced on the tightrope until the Nazis arrive.
