Summary
  • In a small provincial town, arrangements and events surrounding the firemen's annual ball, honoring a retiring firechief, go wrong at every turn
  • "A milestone of the Czech New Wave, Milos Forman's first color film The Firemen's Ball (Hoří, má panenko) is both a dazzling comedy and a provocative political satire. A hilarious saga of good intentions confounded, the story chronicles a firemen's ball where nothing goes right--from a beauty pageant whose reluctant participants embarrass the organizers to a lottery from which nearly all the prizes are pilfered. Presumed to be a commentary on the floundering Czech leadership, the film was 'banned forever' in Czechoslovakia following the Russian invasion and prompted Forman's move to America."--Container notes
