This is a great example for good casting to be the base of verisimilitude of a good film. The setting of the movie was very interesting, and I loved the piece because of Slavek and his madonna, very lovable characters.

Everything was great. We could see the background of European countries, and background of Toilet in Europe. Moreover, the actor and actress were very charming. Good actor/actress!!!

ストーリーも音楽も素敵でした。面白い! ラストは最高。 スラヴィックのトイレ哲学に上回る、女性の登場でぐっと面白くなった。 もっと観てみたいと思いました。

こちらは何語で話している映画なのでしょうか? ラストシーンのおじさんは、なぜかかっこよく見えました。 曲もコミカルで印象的なラストシーン。 この監督の作品、長編でも見てみたいですね。 きっと楽しいと思います。 5つ星以上!
