Doch das ist nicht das einzige Geheimnis, das die Mühle und ihren Meister umgibt: Alljährlich in der Neujahrsnacht muss einer der Jungen sterben - an Stelle des Meisters, dem dadurch ein weiteres Lebensjahr geschenkt wird.

3 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in Czech and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Thirty Years' War is seen from the point of view in this satirical slapstick comedy that combines engravings, old cartoons, montages, special effects, and film. The positions of both sides of the religious war are fair game for biting satirical jabs. Petr (Kastka) plays a peasant who is pressed to join one side before being captured by the enemy and mistaken for a Duke. Matej (Miloslav Holub) can change sides quickly with his reversible cloak. Lenka (Emille Vasaryova) disguises herself as a jester to avoid the conflict and gives her comments about the pompous futility on both sides of the conflict

Faced with a hostile environment and threats extraterrestrial, the two groups decide not to co-exist but to continue their warring ways. And then there's Angelika and the smitten soldier.
