Film at Filmový přehled


This 1967 debut feature from director Radim Cvrček tells the story of a lost Russian girl, who experiences an unexpected adventure with two Czech boys. Travelling with her parents, little Táňa Berkosovová accidentally departs a sleeper train headed for Brno. Pepa and Lojzík help the lost foreigner, dressed in her pyjamas, finding her some proper clothes and seeing her off to Brno. En route, the trio, hiding from the police, experiences a number of extraordinary adventures. But in the end, the police take custody of Táňa… Non-actress Dáša Pazderková assumes the leading role in this undemanding feature. The duo of young “sharp-shooters” is played by Vladimír Zátka and Ivo Strangmülller – the latter’s role as Pepík kicking off a successful acting career. Popular actor and impersonator Antonín Jedlička shines in the role of a German magician.
