This oddball satire, a favorite of cult film festivals, is set in Prague during 1900. There, pulp fiction hero Nick Carter looks into a series of murders. Eventually he finds the killer, a large carnivorous plant named Adele. The film was created in the style of a silent melodrama.

An absurd, bizarre, odd, funny and very charming parody on private detective movies. Fine camera work by Kučera (as always) plus some nice stop motion work.
And yes, I would die to get hold of Carter's gorgeous super detective equipment!
