Jak utopit doktora Mrácka aneb Konec vodniku v Cechách AKA How to drown Dr. Mracek (1974) - Václav Vorlícek
There are still water spirits among us. One group lives in Prague, led by Mr. Wassermann, who is using his wife's family as a servants. All they need is their old house near the river. But the house is to be demolished. They have to stop it. And the only way is to drown Dr. Mrácek, who is responsible for the demolition. But he falls in love with Wassermann's niece Jana. He changes to fish, is mistaked for water spirit from Germany, is drowned and revived again. The other problem is the flour with ears... and so on... =)
i realised that there are many fans of oldskool czech comedies from 70's like Limonadovy Joe, Adela jeste nevecerela, The Mysterious Castle In The Carpathians and other.... this one is the same cup of tea. Vaclav Vorlicek keep the style of Oldrich Lipsky and mixed great romantic-comedy-fantasy movie about hard life of czech water spirits... i hope you enjoy it. Whole name of this piece is: "How to drown Dr. Mracek aka the end of water spirits in Bohemia"
