The fireman's ball( Visual )

1 edition published in 1967 in Czech and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A provincial firemen's ball with its raffle, beauty contest and presentations descends into utter chaos. Initially unassumingly deadpan as a comedy of manners with a cutting edge, the ball sours as the evening wears on into full-on allegorical satire on the foibles of humanity in general and the corruption of the Stalinist world in particular. Released on the eve of the Prague Spring, Forman's film is representative of the full flowering of freedom from state censorship during 1967-1968

With the awareness of their every word being listened to, through the night his relationship with his wife descends into fearful recriminations. The film functions as a daring allegory of the relationship between an oppressive political regime and its citizens. Needless to say, it was banned immediately upon completion."--[Publisher's statement]
