Synopsis

The Good Soldier Schweik
This is a deft satire by Axel von Ambesser that undercuts the adage that a soldier must always obey orders, no matter what. At the heart of the story is Schwejk (Heinz Ruhmann), a canine salesman who is drafted into the army during World War I. The setting is Bohemia when it was under the sway of a combined Austro-Hungarian rule. Once Schwejk has his uniform on he so devotedly follows the very letter of the law, every order that is given him, that he comes off as a total idiot. Nevertheless, he manages quite well with this tactic, whether it is feigned or not. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

The Good Soldier Schweik 2: Beg to Report, Sir
This satiric military comedy in the tradition of M*A*S*H and Catch-22 that was taken from the popular works of author Jaroslav Hasek tells the tale of well-intending soldier Schweik, who never fails to drive his superiors mad despite having only the best of intentions. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
