9 January 2004 | by (Czech Republic) – See all my reviews

The movie is animated just like Chicken Run and the true assekce dwells in the five stories, fairy-tales-not-for-children you might call them - "When the leaves fall from oak" is about a villager Cupera who drinks much and therefore he makes deals with the Devil. The first for the "thing he doesn't know he has at home". Of course a boy-baby. By a pretty trick he saves his son but starts drinking anew. The second is about his drinking - Hell is really convincing treatment for alcohol abusers! The second story is "Fearless Frankie" about a young guy who doesn't know how to fear and tries to learn. The third - "Mean Barbara" (better translation would be Miserly Barka) is a pure comedy from a small town. The fourth, shows a man addicted to lottery who believes his dreams might tell him the right numbers. They didn't but, as a paradoxon, the others' will help him to become rich. The last one is indescribable and is called "FIMFARUM", which doesn't have any meaning until...

Enjoy it!
