Cameraman F. A. Brabec's directorial debut adapts Alfred Jarry's absurd drama in a manner emphasizing artistic stylization. With the help of popular stars (singer Lucie Bílá, and comedians Marián Labuda and Boleslav Polívka), the director managed an impressive rendering of the original work which highlights the ludicrousness of the utter victory of the churlish sovereign.
