Screenwriter Milos Macourek wrote the part of Matylda, the tyrannical head of the water-spirits family, specifically for Helena Ruzicková. However, the actress was politically undesirable at the time for the Czechoslovakian totalitarian regime and was not allowed to shoot the film. For Míla Myslíková, who eventually played Matylda, this was rare performance in such negative role. See more »
It's a pity but it's improbable you'll have the possibility to see this movie outside the Czech Republic (where is still very popular and people for sure don't need my comment about it). It's a modern fairy tale, witty and a bit romantic, about a group of water spirits living in Prague and their relationship with normal human beings.
I've seen this movie twice and I've highly enjoyed his humor, although my knowledge of Czech language is still poor.
BTW the title means "How to drown Dr. M. or the end of water spirits in Bohemia"
