My Sweet Little Village (1986)
The great Czech director Jiri Menzel, best known for “Closely Watched Trains,” which won the 1967 Best Foreign Language Oscar, scored another Oscar nomination for “My Sweet Little Village,” a serio-comic, charming chronicle, perhaps too episodic account of the daily life of a small village.
As always Menzel treats his material with humanistic wit and whimsy.
