Film at Filmový přehled


This 1975 comedy centred on two brothers introduces us to the likeable pubescent Martin Pavelka, also known as Prcek (“Tiny Tot”). Martin looks up to his big brother Honza, the winner of the junior flat track motorcycle racing contest. Honza has, however, split up with his girlfriend Zuzana and Tiny Tot is bent on reuniting the young couple. He resorts to all manner of means and methods to get the couple into the town hall and before the wedding registrar… The main character in this comedy directed by Stanislav Strnad is played by Roman Čada, who between 1973 and 1983 performed in a wide variety of roles and Czech films. Jan Hrušinský was allotted the part of Honza while Zuzana is played by Libuše Šafránková. Three years after its release, a loosely connected sequel to this light entertainment hit the cinemas, namely Brácha za všechny peníze (What a Brother I Have). Once again the director was Strnad.
