an old success may have new clothes ? in some measure. and this is problem. Arabela has her place in soul of each viewer. but rekindle the fire is not easy. and not very wise. open end has its importance. and old adventures - its charm. a new edition is not exactly, in this case, reactualization. only imagination exercise. not very convincing. it is a lot to say but, after years, in new system, Arabela is only shadow of Cinderella. the old twins - search to perfect way to tell a fairy tale to new generation. the first flavor is perfect. each change, each innovation is cage of feelings and emotions. a new Czekoslovakia has need of new myth. and our times are perfect for a Kafka more than delicate Arabela.
