Marecku, podejte mi pero! (1976) Online

A factory producing agricultural machines is about to be thoroughly modernized. If he wants to keep his job, master craftsman Kroupa (Jirí Sovák) is going to have to improve his qualifications through further training and completing his school-leaving exams. Kroupa is persuaded to go back to school by his subordinates who fear that the unbearable Hujer (Václav Lohniský), who has already signed on for schooling, may get promoted and take Kroupa's place. The students at the evening classes of the technical college are all middle-aged people. Even so, there are go-getters, shirkers and slobs among them just like in any other school. {locallinks-homepage}

This comedy is about one average family. The father works as master in the factory and his son is studying on high school. One day father must start to visit the evening school. It's the same school as his son visiting. The lives both students are connecting together. The son must teach the math and physics his own father. The father getting to know, that the life of the students is not simple as he supposed.


Talking to a fellow IMDber on IMDb's European Cinema board about Czech cinema,I got told about a Czech Comedy that they were after.Looking round for info,I happily stumbled on the title with English Subtitles,which led to me getting ready to pass the pen.

The plot:

As new machinery is coming into the workplace, lead factory worker Jiri Kroupa is told that he must learn new skills,or he will get the sacked.Originally believing that he has no need to learn the new skills,Kroupa (and his fellow workers) decide to learn their new skills at the same school that Kroupa's son Jirí Kroupa jr. attends.Turning up for their first day at "school" Kroupa and his fellow workers show themselves to be more childish than the children at the school.

View on the film:

Following the workers into school,director Oldrich Lipský and cinematographer Jirí Macák write on the blackboard in wonderfully drab 70's Sit-Com colours,with the school being covered in fading yellows and tobacco browns.Avoiding any satirical notes for most of the movie, Lipský slides the movie into vibrant Sci-Fi,as computers become the new major workers.

Sending Chinese whispers round the school,the screenplay by Ladislav Smoljak & Zdenek Sverák take sheer delight in making the adults naughty school children,as one liners hit the teachers whilst notes asking other students out are passed around.Doing everything to avoid going back to school, Jirí Sovák gives an excellent performance as Jirí Kroupa st.,who Sovák fills with a delicious stubborn attitude,which breaks as Jirí Kroupa st. has to pass the pen.
