Plot Summary
An unusual dramatization of a classic children's story, from Czech master animator Jan Svankmajer.| This loose retelling of Lewis Carroll's "Alice in Wonderland" dives into the story's dark psychological dimensions. By seamlessly combining live action with toy objects and animation, Svankmajer creates a surreal dream world unlike any other presented on film.
