Christmas in a Child's Dream
7 October 2006 | by (Czech Republic) – See all my reviews

This short animation is one of the most beautiful animated movies on a theme of Christmas. It is a black and white film which combines animation and actor playing (there is one child actress). In the movie there are very precious kinetic scenes: old puppet is dancing on the piano (on the bars and on the board, it is playing with ventilator that makes the room a dramatic space of a strong windstorm etc.). Animator of this movie was Karel Zeman, the master of Czech animation. The music is lyrical and has a magic of Christmas poetry.

The story is nice. After little girl had obtained new toys, she throw her old puppet down. Later she went to bed and got a strange dream. The puppet (it's a simple figure) revives and starts to walk, dance and smile. Girl awakes and feel happy because this is incredible sight. She returns to old puppet.
