The story is set in the early 17th century and revolves around a magic bottle, from which one drop can fulfill one wish. The current owner is obliged to sell it on, but for half the price. According to legend, whomever has the last drop will be consigned to Hell.
I saw the movie (as a series) still on the DDR-Fernsehen in 1983 or '84. Let it be 10 of 10, after all it was too long ago to remember if it wasn't!
A little red bottle is the vortex of the film, playing in 17th century Bohemia. That one has to be sold by anyone who has it, at half the price of purchase. If you keep it, or sell it at too high a price, you will make a little journey -- to Hell!
A little girl, Magdalena (Michaela Kudlackova) comes to travel with a man (Matous?). -- An officer is after the bottle.
The girl and the man are fleeing. Magdalena happens to be the one to buy the bottle at TWO hellers. The officer wants to buy it from her at ONE heller -- the lowest monetary unit of the place and time! She cautions him of the spell.
But he takes it from her, and gives her the heller. -- The end is not very clear to see, but I think, the officer gets killed by an enemy.
--On one occasion, little Michaela goes bathing naked in a lake -- I wonder whether they would be afraid of such a scene nowadays :-)!
