The Loveliest Riddle / Nejkrasnejsi hadanka DVD
The charming and clever young man Matěj has a kind heart and a love for riddles, as well as for Majdalenka, the daughter of the farmer he works for. Majdalenka returns his affection, but her father has already chosen another suitor for her, Jakub, the son of the magistrate. All is not lost, however, because Matěj saves a white dove, which in return brings him a magical strawberry that allows him and Majdalenka to understand the language of birds. When the farmer dismisses Matěj, he sets off to the castle where a riddle contest is being held for the hand of Princess Rozmarýnka. Whoever solves three riddles wins her as his wife. Unlike the others, Matěj is undeterred by the king's announcement that those who fail will lose their ears and nose. Matěj easily solves the princess's riddle, while she cannot solve his and must give him a kiss. The same thing happens the next day. Matěj befriends a soldier named Ondra, who secretly loves the princess, and encounters the greedy general, steward, and lady-in-waiting, who constantly plot and scheme. They force Matěj to promise to give up the princess and share the reward offered by the king, but Matěj outsmarts and punishes them. He decides to return to Majdalenka, but on the way, he is captured by bandits led by Madlafous, who force him to join them. After helping them steal gold, the bandits betray him, and he ends up in prison. The steward, general, and lady-in-waiting eagerly anticipate his execution. With Ondra's help, Matěj exposes all the intrigues, punishes the bandits, reveals the true suitor for the princess, and earns his happiness with Majdalenka.
