Plot Summary

Rudolph II, the Holy Roman Emperor, does not have a simple life. And yet he manages to complicate it even more with his frequent outbursts of anger. While he searches for a mythical Golem, an animated clay statue, Matthew the Baker is thrown into the dungeon for selling the special buns for the emperor to people. Matthew is accidentally mistaken for the emperor and takes his place. And when the Golem is finally found, it will complicate things beyond comprehension... Written by Marek 14

Goofs In the very first scene with Emperor Rudolf II, the Emperor just woke up with a toothache so he smashes a vase in anger. Moments later, after he is told that Golem was still not found, he smashes another one. But before the second vase hits the ground, you can see the floor where broken pieces of the first vase should still be present. The floor is completely clean. See more »
