The Imp

  • Czech Republic / 2005 / 90min / Colour
  • Original Title : Skritek
  • Director : Tomas Vorel


A village family has moved up in the world to the local town. The father is working as a butcher in a meat-packing plant, while mother is employed as a supermarket cashier. Their daughter is at primary school, but sheís sheís bottom of her class and sheís in constant trouble with her teacher. Their son studies at the local catering college, as his father wants him to be a butcher too. And as if that wasnít enough, an imp is thrown into the mix, bringing absurdity and humour into each situation. The whole story is a succession of gags, sketches and tragic-comic situations, culminating in a police chase and an unexpected shoot-out. A film guaranteed to keep you laughing, or crying.
