Up and Down (Czech: Horem pádem) is a 2004 comedy film directed by Jan Hřebejk.

Milan and Goran are two criminals who smuggle illegal immigrants. One night after they complete a smuggle, they discover that one of the immigrants has left a baby behind. Letting nothing go to waste, the smugglers decide to sell the baby to an illegal adoption center which kicks into gear a series of tragic, and darkly comic events. Up and Down exposes racism and many of the failures of the Czech system.
