Summer cinema tip: Moonraker (1979) – James Bond versus Venini
Agent 007 must again accomplish a difficult task – averting the threat of extermination of the human race by poison gas and finding the lost space shuttle Moonraker. Following a trail of mysterious glass, Bond stops in a shop of the famous glass company Venini. If the collection of Venini glass offered by praguekabinet is not enough for you, then you can join James Bond in looking around the Venini museum, where many valuable works are kept, such as bowls from the 16th century and a glass handle, the only one of its kind in the world, which was owned by General Menotti at the end of the 18th century. I would rather not experience certain scenes from the film in praguekabinet, which would not stand up to the brawl between James Bond and his enemy – vases, bowls, carafes and other magnificent glass objects, hand-blown blown Venetian masters, would literally fly through the air and end up broken into a thousand pieces.
