Miss Golem

Jaroslav Balík, 1972



Screenwriter Josef Nesvadba had a penchant for science fiction but involved himself in a variety of film genres, with somewhat mixed results. Perhaps his most famous film is Zabil jsem Einsteina, pánové… (I Killed Einstein, Gentlemen!, 1969) but Slečna Golem (Miss Golem, 1972) also merits attention. This story of pretty hostess Věra, whose life is made difficult by her sinister clone, has become more pertinent as genetic science and cloning have gained prominence. Initially intended to look after Věra, “Miss Golem” – a chance creation by the inventor Petr – turns into a manipulating tyrant and as such invokes ultimate destruction, just like any other contrived being revolting against its human creators… Directed by Jaroslav Balík, the film features a talented cast headed by Jana Brejchová in the dual lead role and Jan Tříska as the inventor Petr.
