Storyline

In a suburban villa, a woman of means is murdered. Police Superintendent Zdychynec (Vladimír Mensík) from the Prague Liben neighborhood reports the case to Police Councilman Vacátko (Jaroslav Marvan), upon whose order an investigation is launched immediately. Zdychynec begins to suspect the wooer of his own daughter, a handsome dragoon named Rudi (Josef Abrhám), of the crime. In Rudi's absence, Zdychynec searches his rented room in the apartment of the elegant Mrs Dragicová (Kveta Fialová). All his findings - among others, sand left on Rudi's jackboots and a decent amount of money in his bedside table - convince the superintendent that he is following the right lead, especially when Rudi refuses to say where he was at the time of the murder.

"A Bloody Vaudeville"
16 July 2007 | by (Czech Republic) – See all my reviews

"The Matches of a Beautiful Dragoon" is full-length picture consequent on a successful TV series The Sinful People of Prague. It is a serial of criminal cases investigated by a group of detectives from the time of the First Republic. In this movie investigators looks for the murderer of one old lonely lady from peripheral Prague quarter. The suspicious is young and beautiful dragoon Rudi, coming son-in-law of the local commissar (perfectly played by Vladimír Mensík). But he is entangled to another crime! This movie is both perfect detective story and comedy, there are many comic moments in plot, in characteristics of personages, in dialogs. Movie has got a wonderful atmosphere of old Prague periphery. The performances are splendid. Young Josef Abrhám in a role of dragoon is convincing and the group of criminal investigators are great as ever. The music by Zdenek Liska is superb, there are frequent allusions on brass band songs and also one his author song sang by perfect Josef Bek.
