To make one thing clear: all Zeman films are great! I saw them many years ago as a child and now, 25 years later, I had the luck to see them all again. They are still as good as in my memories. OK, the technical standards have moved forward since then, but good stories and fanciful images have their advantages and will be honored by today's unbiasedly viewers too. I watched another Zeman film ("Journey to the Beginning of Time") recently with my son (6 years old) - and he was excited! "The Jester's Tale" is nearly as good as all the other Zeman classics (although it can't quite reach my all-time classics "The Fabulous World of Jules Verne", "Journey to the Beginning of Time" and "Stolen Airship"). If you have the possibility to watch these films again - do it, they are worth it!
