Satirical fantasy
26 August 2003 | by (Prague, Czech rep.) – See all my reviews

This movie is one of the best tales ever filmed in former Czechoslovakia. It is a story of three veterans released from the army. During one night spent camping in the country they one by one wake up and meet three elvish brothers. Each of the veterans is given a magic item - one gets magic harp that provides him with servants by wish, other one endless pouch of gold and the last one owns magic hat that can create all the staff excluding money and people.

These three guys travel, enjoy their newly acquired treasures until the time when Bumbac fells in love when he spots a picture of princess Bosana at her country's border. But king, his advisor and even the princess herself are so greedy of veterans' magic items, they decide to demand them as a dowry. When they put their hands on harp and pouch, veterans are jailed and deported from the country.

They decide to get their staff back - elves meet them again and present them magic pears. They get back, selling the fruits as mysterious sources of beauty. Greedy princess buys them and her nose starts to ashame all the elephants. In a while the nose's tip crosses the border of tiny kingdom and pays "official" visits to Austria, Germany, ... Three veterans now turn to three sages who get hired to cure the princess. Cure is composed of changing princess's character, returning the magic staff and eating one more pear.
