After an injection of elixir, absurd dreams and visions become real. Rose learns this after dosing her husband Henry to stop him dreaming about Jessie, a curvaceous comic-book heroine who has anti-gravitational gloves; Henry wakes up next to Jessie, pursued by a cowboy and a super hero.

Winner of the first prize at Trieste 1966, this is a lovely little "comic strip" film, where if a few gags fall flat, it is more than compensated for by the pace, the inventiveness, the gorgeous b&w photography and the underplayed black humor, a house specialty of the Czechs.
This is my 2nd Vorlicek film, and it's similarly wacky. The plot concerns a scientist who wants to get rid of bad dreams. The problem is that instead of just curing them, they manifest in the real world. There's a bad superman and cowboy, who are after Jessie because of gloves. You'll have to watch the movie to make sense of it.
