Vaclav Vorlicek's black and white Czech slapstick fantasy was made the same year as Daisies (1966), and it's hard to think of two more irresponsible and anarchic comedies made under a communist regime. This one is slighter and more conventional, but its premise is still pretty outrageous. A scientist develops a formula that can transform a cow's nightmare of being attacked by flies (viewed on a TV monitor) into a more pleasant dream of placidly swinging in a hammock. But when she tries the serum out on her wimpy husband—who's been reading a comic book about a sexy Barbarella-type SF heroine, and dreaming she saves him from the clutches of an overweight Superman clone and an ornery wild-west gunslinger—all three characters immediately materialize, complete with dialogue bubbles. Most of what ensues is farcical, non-stop pandemonium, exceptionally silly and mainly delightful. For the record, the misleading English title should have been, Who Wants to Kill Jessie? In Czech with subtitles. 80 min.
