»Marečku, podejte mi pero!« (Marecek, pass me the pen!) at Czech Film Wednesday

03.07.2024 • 20:00 • Zentralkino Dresden

A comedy by and with Smoljak and Svěrák about an illustrious series of characters who have to go back to school as adults

»Marečku, podejte mi pero!« (Marecek, pass me the pen!) Jiří Kroupa, a foreman in an agricultural machinery factory, is forced by the works council to attend night school. He must improve his qualifications in order to be able to keep his job after the planned modernization of the company. He is joined by a motley crew of students - the flighty Hujer, the flirtatious Mrs. Týfová, the class villains Tuček and Šlajs, the confused Plha and the eternal sleepwalker Dudek. Although most of them are middle-aged, they turn back into schoolchildren. They copy, moan, disrupt classes, lie if they haven't done their homework and just wait for the bell to ring. Their teachers are just as idiosyncratic as the students, among whom stand out the peculiar chemistry teacher Hrbolek and the class teacher Janda, who has to endure many difficulties with his adult students over the course of the school year, such as unexpected "parent evenings" with a large number of participants, especially the Hujer family.

Given the setting – adults who are going back to school – you might think of a film similar to "Feuerzangenbowle", but apart from some rather peculiar teacher characters, you would be completely wrong. Of course, the duo Smoljak/Svěrák also stand for the odd knee-slapper, but basically the film is characterized by a much more subtle sense of humor. And of course there are also
