Film at Filmový přehled


This fairytale adventure set in 1611 numbers among the features for children and adolescents that predominantly populate director Ludvík Ráža’s filmography. Screenwriter Ondřej Vogeltanz – who also scripted Ráža’s “Twainian” TV movie Princ a chuďas (The Prince and the Pauper, 1971) – sets his child stars amidst the dramatic ambience caused by the outbreak of the Thirty Years’ War. Mercenaries from Passau are retreating to avoid the army of the Hungarian king and our modest heroes become victims of the circumstances. The overflowing purse of merchant Bartoš, and the magic bottle that can fulfil a wish for anyone who possesses it, complicate their journey even more. Wandering musician Matouš, who dreams of forming a great band, and lonely, 12-year-old Magdalena, searching after her lost mother, encounter each other on their way to Krumlov… Young Michaela Kudláčková and the seasoned Ivan Vyskočil take centre-stage in this attractive genre feature from Ráž.
