Jaroslav Mach, 1968

Film at Filmový přehled


In 1968, Jaroslav Mach took audiences back to the chateau Ronov for the sequel to his crime comedy Nahá pastýřka (The Naked Shepherdess, 1966). The chateau is now operating as a stylish hotel run by former crook Pacínek (Bohumil Šmída). However, Ronov still draws participants in organised crime: robbers of antiques give way to a gang that has just stolen two million crowns from a state bank. The villains, posing as members of the jazz band Skelet, hide the loot in a suitcase that looks exactly the same as the luggage of police captain Tronda (Vladimír Menšík). Mutual animosity heightens, the adversaries start murdering each other and eventually only Zuzanka (Jaroslava Obermaierová) remains alive. Pavel Landovský, František Peterka and Zdeněk Dítě star as the criminals passing themselves off as musicians.
