Review
Young provincial waiter Jan Dite may be short in height but his aspirations are lofty, he is determined to become a millionaire and he knows just how to do it. Continually watching and listening to his superiors and his high-flying, big-spending customers, Jan learns how to succeed by pleasing others. Based on the novel by Czech author Bohumit Hrabal, and directed by the Academy Award winning maker of ‘Closely Observed Trains', 'I Served The King' is a beguiling comedy about opportunism, identity, money and sex that effortlessly mixes wit and slapstick with sharply observed political and social satire.
