Christmas has arrived. As a little girl and her parents enter the room, the little girl finds all kinds of toys under the Christmas Tree. She immediately throws her old doll aside and starts playing with her new dolls. But that night she has a dream. Or isn't it a dream... Written by
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.
