I'm not entirely familiar with the exact history, but Svankmajer's take is both extremely funny and unsettling. My favorite image is the montage of images of ludicrous exercise demonstrating the fitness of citizens played alongside similar looking old cutouts of acts of torture.

One of my favorite films since my early teens. The sequence of clay workers being molded and hanged is one of my very favorite scenes in all of cinema, ever. It's as hilarious as it is vitriolic, and although the viewer definitely needs some familiarity with modern Czech history to fully appreciate it, the images are striking and funny enough for it to be worth a watch in any case.

Like a lot of other films from the region, one feels that some sort of guidebook to Eastern European political history is required to really grasp the meaning and significance. Still, it was an intriguing and humorous work.
