«Der Film ist einfach komisch. Als Parabel ist er zeitlos und daher auch in vielen anderen Ländern relevant. Es ist erstaunlich: wenn ich von bürokratischen Geistesblitzen höre, ist das erste Bild in meinem Kopf ein Feuerwehrmann, der einen Bauern auf seinem Stuhl näher an die Flammen rückt.» Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun Times
