Show Full Description
Revered as the pioneer of a remarkable new genre of animation that utilized puppets, Czech animation master Jiri Trnka had enormous impact on the development of animation in his country, and he inspired the careers of an entire generation of filmmakers around the globe. In this bewitching adaptation of Shakespeare’s romantic fairy tale—perhaps Trnka’s masterpiece—the love lives of mortals and forest sprites mingle during one magical moonlit evening. For his final feature, Trnka deploys the full force of his imagination and technical wizardry to evoke the story’s enchanted-woodlands setting, a garlanded, pastel dreamscape awash in starry-night atmosphere, colorful festoons of flowers, and exquisitely wrought fantasy creatures.
