Věra Plívová-Šimková, Drahomíra Králová, 1982



In 1982, experienced creator of children’s films Věra Plívová-Šimková directed another adventure for her young audience. As with her previous film Tony, tobě přeskočilo (Tony, You Are Nuts, 1968), Drahomíra Reňáková-Králová collaborated in the directing. The main character is neurotic 10-year-old pupil Roman Hlava. After having spent several years in Latin America with his parents, he is somewhat lacking in independence and has difficulty adapting to his new environment. Only when he becomes friends with his classmate Pekárek, nicknamed Šmatla, does he find his way to nature and the other children. This holiday story also includes an adventurous plot involving a thief of goshawk chicks… Debuting in the principal part of this agreeable children’s picture is non-professional actor Filip Menzel.
