Who wants to kill Jessi?



Czechoslovakia, 1966, 79'
Director: Václav Vorlíček
С: Dana Medřická, Jiří Sovák, Olga Schoberová, Juraj Višný, Karel Effa
Jindřich Beránek, a mild mannered engineer, is astonished when Jessie, the voluptuous heroine of a comic strip he had been dreaming about, materialises next to him in bed one morning, a side-effect of his scientist wife drugging him with a serum she had been testing on cattle.


Moreover, Jessie is not the only one to have escaped her fictitious cartoon frame confines; two supervillains (a cowboy and Superman!) are in pursuit, filling the screen with speech bubbles and running amok across a satirically bureaucratic 1960s Prague. Kája Saudek, called the King of the Czech comic books, is the author of the poster and fictional comics for the film.
