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.
