I thought my husband had really lost his marbles when he brought this video home for us to watch - but how wrong I was. It's a gem, a winner, over-the-top wonderful. There are really only 3 characters in it (with a small part played by the couple's womanizing adult son): Fanda and his wife, Emilie, and Fanda's friend and partner in innocent crime, Eda.
Emilie is obsessed with saving money in little cans, each with its own purpose, but the can that preoccupies her for 9/10 of the movie is the one where she's saving for their funeral expenses. All of her talk is about their deaths, their funerals, what music, what will be posted in the newspapers - and in her amble spare time, she wants to visit cemeteries and take care of graves.
Fanda? Well, Fanda would rather live than die, and if he had his druthers, he'd like to live the good life. He and Eda sneak off to tour estates that are for sale (posing, of course, as wealthy prospective clients), trick pretty girls into kissing them as a bribe. He likes to smoke, drink good liquor, take French lessons, laugh, and enjoy life.
Their son wants to move them out of their already cramped apartment and into a retirement home so he can take over their apartment. Emilie is - - - oh, fergeddit. I'm telling too much. I don't want to spoil if for anyone. Just trust me on this and watch the movie. I guarantee you'll emerge grinning. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful film.

I'm a little surprised that no other Amazon reviewers have posted anything on this Czech charmer. This is definitely the kind of "in-theaters" sleeper that usually inspires a few "snap-up-the-DVD-the-moment-it's-released" reviews. Justifiably so in this case. When I took it in recently, on a friend's recommendation, there was applause over the closing credits, and for once, that kind of reaction didn't seem ludicrous to me.
AUTUMN SPRING is a gentle comedy about one's man refusal to go gentle into that good night. A prankster, whose usually innocent practical jokes do no harm and keep the specter of debility and death at least somewhat at bay, Frantisek (Fanda) Hana does get in a bit over his head at times. When one of his jokes backfires, resulting in substantial financial loss, it strains his marriage to the more staid, long-suffering Stella. When a follow-up prank has him feigning his death and leaving Stella distraught, she feels compelled to seek divorce--after 44 years of marriage.
It's fairly easy to predict whether or not Stella will go through with the divorce. But the scene in which she reconsiders and he vows to mend his ways is so deftly acted, so understated, that its transcends cliche. Indeed everything about this movie is pitched just right. I hate to speak ill of my native land's film industry--and Hollywood CAN do some things right. But the last thing I would want to see is an American re-make of this quiet, and quietly funny little gem.
The one negative print review of this film took note that--unlike the life-affirming Fanda--the celebrated Czech actor,Vlastimil Brodsky (CLOSELY WATCHED TRAINS, JACOB THE LIAR), who portrayed him committed suicide shortly after the film was completed.

This sweet czech film is about an old man who refuses to join the cult of "waiting for death" that most of the aged around him, included his wife, seem to think is the only appropriate way to be. He and his buddy are terminal pranksters who try to milk every bit of fun out of their existience as they can, much to the consternation of his family, who wants him to settle down and act like his life is over. This is truly touching in moments, quietly funny in others and very life affirming altogether. The acting is restrained, but suitably and realistically human. Nothing really stands out on a technical level, but it doesn't need to with such endearing characters.

I have to wholeheartedly agree with all the reviewers (only 3 at time of writing).
This film is simple in premise, it lacks on hollywoodisation and the budget that goes with it but holds and grips from 1st scene to last. The few characters in the film are simply all you need to remind you of life and what makes you think.
I have attempted to get my fiancee to watch this film ("is it subtitles?!") but im sure when she does watch this she will love it. Lord of the Rings this is not (also very good but flawed) it is the best foreign film i have seen since Cinema Paradiso.
Watch and Enjoy :)
