DĚDICTVÍ ANEB KURVAHOŠIGUTNTÁG

THE INHERITANCE OR FUCKOFFGUYSGOODDAY

Věra Chytilová
ČSSR , 1992, 120 Min

Shortly after the fall of the Iron Curtain the biggest good-for-nothing in a Moravian village suddenly becomes millionaire and proceeds uses his newfound wealth to implement one madcap idea after the next. A pointed comedy, not to mention long-underappreciated portrait of society in the aftermath of the Velvet Revolution.

Bohuš Stejskal leads a dissolute lifestyle: he lives for the moment from the modest surroundings of his parents' rundown house, struggles for the innkeeper's affections and, to the latter end, regularly hangs around in her pub. One day a man in a suit appears and wants to speak to him. His drinking buddies believe the newcomer is a secret policeman and yet he claims to be a lawyer in possession of an incredible message: Bohuš has inherited big time and is now rich. 

How accurately Věra Chytilová was able to capture the spirit of an age in this film, shot back in 1992, has only become clear with the benefit of hindsight. Back then film critics and audiences alike were more likely to turn their noses up at the work's crude humour and feel a sense of embarrassment when faced with the simple-minded heroes. In the meantime, however, the film has obtained a kind of cult status, especially amongst younger generations, as a pointed reflection of the wild nineties with its previously undreamt-of opportunities, as well as the career highs and lows. In 2014 a sequel was shot, this however didn't come close to matching the heights of the original. CF
