Václav Krška, 1967

Film at Filmový přehled


When it comes to the output of director Václav Krška, comedies make up the lesser part of his work. Moreover, an amusing movie inspired by Italian folk comedies is a rarity of Czechoslovak sixties cinema. At the same time, the subject of 1967's Dívka s třemi velbloudy (The Girl with Three Camels) could even serve as the basis for a psychological family drama. The story’s heroine, 16 year-old Bobina, is set to become a single mother – thus following the fate of her own mother and her forebears. Her only memento of the father of the offspring to be, a young fitter whom she met at a dance, is an exotic postcard with three camels... The role of Bobina became the best-remembered part of actress Zuzana Ondrouchová who died in her late twenties. The part of the protagonist’s mother was taken by the experienced Slávka Budínová.
