He studied law at the Charles University Law School from to , from which he made an early departure to begin his artistic career and forge one of the most important partnerships of his life. Their partnership was a platform for their numerous left-wing political satires. Upon his arrival at the Pinewood set, both producer Albert R. Broccoli and director Lewis Gilbert felt that he was a poor choice, resembling a "poor, benevolent Santa Claus". Nonetheless, in an attempt to make the casting work, Gilbert continued filming. After several days, both Gilbert and Broccoli determined that Werich was not menacing enough, and recast Blofeld with Donald Pleasence in the role.

All the original tales were written by one author - Jan Werich, but each tale was filmed by another director. Balej and Klimt represent the "greenhorns" of Czech animation, Pojar and Pospisilova are the "vets" here. Interesting fact is, that there is a huge difference in work of the older directors and the younger ones.
The Czech animation veterans made brilliant and juicy stories, whereas the young directors tried to bore us almost to death. My favorite story is "Palecek" - directed by Mr.
Pojar, art-concept masterfully made by Czech artist Pavel Koutsky. This story has wonderful sense of humor, funny 2D sequences, lot of wise crack and everything works together. If you want a real laugh, wait for this episode! Pospisilova has also absolutely delightful artistic concept the artist - Petr Pos is well known from short film "Az opada listi z dubu", which was a part of Fimfarum 1.
The story is well focused on the point. Juicy and funny I personally dislike the puppets from this film - they all have silly faces, every figure looks like an idiot. Those "idiotic" puppets were made by the director himself. The main humorous point is completely lost why??? The end of this film feels like the story was longer, but the end was lost somewhere in the cutting room.
I like the art work of Martin Velisek, but this time it was a bit shoddy. For example: the desert town is just one big house, no people in the streets, no camels or other animals, no extra puppets. Was this review helpful to you?
