A comedy-drama about a 16-year old youth who encounters the hypocrisy of the adult world in his first job at a small supermarket. This dazzling debut feature from the famous director Miloš Forman also represents a key work of the Czechoslovak New Wave era. With the help of several non-actor “discoveries”, Forman delivers a loosely structured personal tale that also serves as a piercing study of the generation gap.
