Dinner for Adele Movie Review

carter nick detective scientist

This charming film from Czechoslovakia, a surprise hit at international film festivals, is inspired by the Nick Carter detective stories that enjoyed a vogue at the turn of the 20th century. Dinner for Adele/Adele Hasn't Had Her Supper Yet is about a man-eating plant, some early flying machines, a mad scientist, a sane scientist, a delightful strudel of a girl who makes terrific strawberry dumplings, a fat detective and, last but not least, the famous slender detective Nick Carter whose motto is “Always prepared!” How do they all fit together? Hopefully, a shrewd American distributor will acquire the video rights, so more viewers will have the fun of discovering Adele all over again. (Adele is the animated plant. The wonderfully capable Czech actor Michal Docolomansky plays Nick Carter.) AKA:Adele Hasn't Had Her Supper Yet; Nick Carter in Prague.

1978 100m/C CZ Michal Docolomansky, Rudolf Hrusinsky, Milos Kopecky, Nada Konvalinkova, Ladislav Pesek; D: Oldrich Lipsky; W: Jiri Brdecka; C: Jaroslav Kucera.
