Good Soldier Schweik, The

The novel THE GOOD SOLDIER SCHWEIK is a comic masterpiece and an uproarious send-up of war and military life. Schweik, the good soldier, never fails to want to do the "right" thing, even if his good intentions destroy his superiors and bring down the army. Like Catch 22 and M.A.S.H., SCHWEIK revels in its down-to-earth humor, exposing absurdity at every turn.

A classic of wit and irony, the film THE GOOD SOLDIER SCHWEIK, and its sequel, BEG TO REPORT, SIR, have now been rediscovered as the authentic recreations of Jaroslav Hasek's beloved and ever popular book. Rudolf Hrusinsky (My Sweet Little Village, Larks on a String, Capricious Summer) is brilliant as Schweik, never missing a beat of laughter but also portraying the character with surprising poignancy.
