Storyline

The stories of Baron Münchhausen were enriched by Karel Zeman with a character of a modern astronaut Tommy and compare two different worlds - the world of a rococo cavalier whose fantasy does not have any limits and the world of a young man of the present time. The astronaut (Rudolf Jelínek) finds on the moon the famous dreamer Baron Münchhausen (Milos Kopecký), who takes him back to earth and a variety of exaggerated adventures. Amusing variation on the old stories, using live action against deliberately artificial backgrounds. Written by KrátkýFilm

WOWSER!
16 January 2003 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing this movie in the theater as an 11-year-old and being absolutely bowled over by the imagery. Not a great movie, but a visually arresting work. Like a work of art, in fact a 19th century work of art -- which is exactly what the director was attempting to do. I would be first in line to buy this on DVD.
