The Good Soldier Schweik

by Michael John Nimchuk

Is Joseph Schweik an idiot or a genius? In Nimchuk’s adaptation of Jaroslav Hašek’s 1923 great anti-war comic satire we are never sure if Schweik’s survival is the result of the former or the latter. His escapades with the army and the church represent a scathing indictment of both institutions. Hašek’s commentary rings as true today as it did almost a century ago. "Clarity, charm and great style. Daring." Globe and Mail
