Powder and Petrol

Movies, Comedy
An early Czech cinema classic, the film debut of famous comic duo Voskovec and Werich casts the pair as a traffic warden and a driver uniting in a musical revue. Inspired by circus, jazz, Dada, Keaton and Chaplin, it throws light on the the hybrid approach and tone of such later figures as Petr Zelenka and Vera Chytilová.
