Summary

An unusual film experiment (the film was shot in 23 hours 45 minutes and entered into the Guinness Book of Records as the film shot the fastest using traditional means) derived from an old German legend, the work of Czech poet Viktor Dyk and the musical of the same name by contemporary Czech musician Daniel Landa. The film’s objective was to use Prague’s New Year’s Eve’s atmosphere during the shooting. A simple story of the power of love and hope concludes, in contrast to the original legend, with a happy ending.

Note

The film was shot from December 31, 2002, 10 a.m. to January 1, 2003, 9:45 a.m., in 23 hours and 45 minutes. It was entered in the Guinness Book of Records as the fastest-shot feature film ever made.
