Did You Know?


During the close-ups of the music box, the amount of rust and the position of the screws keeps changing back and forth. It seems that at some point the music box was cleaned and then the scenes were not displayed in the order in which they were shot. See more »

Early but still strange enough to be a Svankmajer film!
28 January 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Hra S Kameny" is one of Jan Svankmajer's earliest shorts. And, because it's so early, it isn't quite the weird style you might expect (it's not particularly creepy)--though it still weird. It's also difficult to describe, so it's one best seen. Using his usual stop-motion, Svankajer animates black and white (and later other color) stones--all set to the music of a music box. The oddest thing in the film is how huge stones appear to be coming out of a very small faucet. Otherwise, it consists of stones dancing about and not much more. It's all times very nicely to the music and a worthy early effort--but also the sort of film the average person would probably never watch or enjoy. So, it's definitely for huge Svankmajer fans who want to try to see everything this master animator has made. And, it's oddly hypnotic as well...
