Renowned Czech New Wave filmmaker Jiri Menzel has created a black comedy detailing the shrewd rise of an ambitious waiter. All the diminutive manservant Jan ever wanted was to be very rich and to preside over his very own hotel. With World War II fast approaching and the Germans steadily taking occupation of Czech territory, the opportunistic waiter begins his rapid ascent up the hospitality ladder by working for a number of high-profile figures. The pursuit of riches is not all it is cracked up to be as the tale develops into universal moral and ethical dilemmas.

A lively and amusing satire. - Stephen Holden, The New York Times
