Episode 538: What Would You Say to a Nice Plate of Spinach? (1977)

Episode 537: What Would You Say to a Nice Plate of Spinach? (1977) Guest Co-Hosts: Jonathan Owen, Ben Buckingham

We continue Czechtember 2021 with our second Václav Vorlícek film this month, How About Some Spinach? (AKA Coz takhle dát si spenát). It’s the story of two nogoodniks Jaroslav Zemánek (Vladimír Mensík) and Frantisek Liska (Jirí Sovák). They’re arrested for trying to steal some alcohol only to get out and get involved in some corporate espionage around a wondrous machine that can make creatures younger or older and can shrink them as well. However, it has a bug that causes unexpected results when the creature has recently ingested spinach.

Ben Buckingham and Jonathan Owen join Mike to talk about this wonderfully oddball film.

  1. I’ve been enjoying this year and last how you’ve been highlighting these interesting/obscure Czech films. Would love to track down places to watch a couple of these with subtitles.
