Beautiful and entertaining Sinbad the Sailor realization
Feels unfair that these short movies of Karl Zeman haven't got votes in IMDb. Very entertaining and beautifully made films of Sinbad are one of the most celebrated stories in the Arabian Nights. There have been plenty of movies based on Arabian Nights, but there still isn't as good one as I'd like. This may be the closest one I've seen to date. Of course the films are made for child audiences but I'm sure the adults will enjoy these works as well, at least I do. I saw these films when I was a kid and when I found these not so long ago in a second-hand shop, it made me really happy. Arabian Nights is the most important book-series for me and these short films are gold! Sinbad the Sailor is the hero of these stories, he just can't have enough of seafaring. No matter how close he's to death in his every adventure, he will go again. He's crew is surely going to die anyway. These films are great whether you know the story or not. But I don't want to spoil anyone's joy by telling anything else about the stories. I recommend it to every child and childlike person who enjoys good story with excellent realization. Can be watched multiple times and you never get tired. Karl Zeman is one of the greats in the genre of animation
