Oldrich Lipský’s film throws itself headlong into comic exaggeration. It creates a coherent fictional world set in the imaginary “Western” country of Bonzania, despite using cartoon elements. The Hitchcockian story of a man wrongly accused of a crime follows the teacher George Camel, who one day discovers that as soon as he opens a door, a corpse falls out – apparently, George has gotten mixed up in a gang war over a million-dollar cheque. The ensemble cast comprises the crème de la crème of the Czech acting fraternity, as well as some of Lipský’s favourite actors, and a period-specific atmosphere of the story reflects the desire to escape an impending totalitarian regime.
