    "Milos Forman's "The Firemen's Ball" was banned "permanently and forever" by the Communist regime in Czechoslovakia in 1968, as Soviet troops marched in to suppress a popular uprising. It was said to be a veiled attack on the Soviet system and its bureaucracy". (Roger Ebert's review)

    A great satire. :)

    Despite some very beautiful shots (more towards the end), I found it to be an average film. 8 years ago
