Storyline

The invincible agent Cyril Juan Borguette alias W4C (Jan Kacer) has been assigned a mission to go to a hotel in Prague, get hold of a saltcellar with a plan for the military exploitation of Venus hidden in it, and hand it over to the beautiful agent Alice (Kveta Fialová). He will have to compete for the saltcellar with other agents working for the world's various greater and smaller powers. The head of the Prague counter-intelligence unit gets news of agent W4C's mission. Deficient in personnel, he nominates accountant Foustka (Jirí Sovák) as agent 13B. Mr Foustka takes his dog Pajda with him and the two head for the airport. Pajda helps him track down agent W4C in a classy hotel that becomes the battleground for the interests and plans of the secret agents from different countries, each trying to get hold of the precious saltcellar.

Nicely-shot James Bond spoof
29 September 1999 | by (New Zealand/Aotearoa) – See all my reviews

Czechoslovakia, when it still existed, had its very own James Bond 007. His name: Cyril Juan W4C.

Maybe not quite the same ring to it, but this guy has the goods. As his boss exclaims, "What a man!".

Set in Prague, this film spoofs the James Bond films, with lashings of beautiful women, whizzy spy gadgets, big guns, tuxedoes, and dark glasses.

Cyril manages to fend off several baddies with machine guns without ever loosening the clinch he's in with the babe of the moment. All this without ever scuffing his white trousers.

The film is intentionally hilarious but is also quite nicely shot in black and white with some fine-looking scenes, many of which are shown as teasers in the opening sequence to the film, which freeze-frames on various punch-ups and tense moments.

This opening sequence is particularly good and is set to some 60s spy music that'll make you want to grab your fountain pen cum rocket launcher, slip on your shades, and get out there to mix with the espionage set.
