“A comedy that has the aura of the Prague Film School (FAMU) about it, where Holland studied, and apparently learned a great deal from Milos Forman in the process. It’s about the life, times, cares and foibles of playing theater in the deep provinces, so true to life that the viewer laughs and cries at the same time. . . . Provincial Actors offers a rib-tickling metaphor on the cultural scene in Poland, or any country—even the political arena, if one accepts the saying ‘the whole world is a stage.’ There are also deeply profound and human scenes. . . . A memorable film” (Ron Holloway, Variety).
