Storyline

Kamila Housková (Gabriela Vránová), a student at the School of Applied Arts in Prague working part-time at an engravers' cooperative, arrives at the main police station with important information. A customer has come to the engraving workshop where she works asking them to make a cast of an old coin. The problem is that the coin, as the girl was to find out, was originally part of the well-known treasure of a ninth-century Byzantine merchant, which was supposed to have been completely destroyed by fire during an air raid in the Second World War. The young criminologist Exner (Jirí Vala) doesn't take the enthusiastic blonde too seriously but, since he quite fancies her, he finally offers to help her. Written by NFA.cz

Captain Exner's Case
20 January 2007 | by (Czech Republic) – See all my reviews

"The Treasure of Byzantine Merchant" is one the Czech detective classics from the sixties. This movie is based on the novel of Václav Erben, successful writer of mysteries, whose famous criminologist was captain Exner. Exner is a clever investigator, but also an elegant playboy with great charm and sense of humor. In this film Jirí Vala perform him perfectly. The theme of this movie is an inquiry of the theft of the treasure which is connected with murder. Ivo Novák, director of this movie, has a gift of combination of thrill and comedy, so there are many funny moments in this film which nicely gradate the serious plot. The performances are great (e. g. Jirí Sovák as Dr. Soudek or Jan Libícek as an investigator Vlcek). There is wonderful music in this movie: Zdenek Liska, the great Czech composer, works in these pieces with the jazz-influenced melodies and the final effect of it is catchy.
