This movie's plot is of the type, where there is a bunch of interesting weird characters who go around doing weird, crazy stuff. It's kind of like slapstick in that it's more physical with facial tic's, people falling, brain transplants, bombs exploding, etc. It's a Czech 1970's new wave creation when everything was very hip and groovy and women were just discovering short skirts and beehive hairdo's. So we have a king, an astrologer who can tell the future using the stars, an evil military guy, a beautiful blonde who is there just for our eye candy really and the star lead woman who roles around hitting into all of these subjects. This lead movie lady is really very good, for a moment i thought she was the astrologer guy in drag, that's how well she impersonates him. Why does she do that? Can't tell you man, that's why this movie is so crazy. Give you a hint thought...brain transplants (lots of them). You are bound to have fun and laugh yourself silly with this good natured and family oriented (12+) spoof of people and their lives. Highly recommended.
