The great Czech director Jiri Menzel, best known for “Closely Watched Trains,” which won the 1967 Best Foreign Language Oscar, scored another Oscar nomination for “My Sweet Little Village,” a serio-comic, charming chronicle, perhaps too episodic account of the daily life of a small village.
As always Menzel treats his material with humanistic wit and whimsy.
