Alice in Wonderland The Unbirthday Song (Czech)

Alice (1988)

The film opens with Alice tossing stones into a stream while her sister reads. The opening credits are intercut with extreme closeups of Alice's mouth as she speaks the lines: "And now, said Alice, you will see a film for children. But you must remember to keep your eyes shut, or you won't see anything! After the credits, we see Alice sitting on the floor throwing stones into a teacup and playing with dolls that resemble herself and her sister. When a taxidermied white rabbit comes to life and checks his pocket watch nervously, Alice follows him into Wonderland. Playing cards, stuffed animals, sewing kits and the like pantomime funhouse versions of social interactions. Stripped of Carroll's language, Alice's adventures take on an eerie quality.

Sign in. No host? No problem. Watch funny moments, inspiring speeches, and more highlights from the Emmy Awards. Watch now. An ordinary man is lured into a strange puppet theatre by a map and finds himself embroiled in a production of the Faustian legend. When a childless couple learn that they cannot have children, it causes great distress.

The short films — some of them about food fights, in which items of food conflict with and factually eat each other — are strong stuff, and their brevity is often a mercy, wonderful as they are. How could this great book, so verbally intricate and intellectually contorted, be done justice by a non-speaker of English, and one working in a visual medium, for the most part quite wordlessly? While it had some truly strange old-style Burtonian moments and touches, mostly it felt airless and disappointing, partly due to a clunkingly predictable script. Its Alice was rather charmless Mia Wasikowska, reportedly though much better as Jane in the new Jane Eyre — and too well-developed The sweet but not saccharine blonde heroine watches a stuffed rabbit in her room come to life, dress himself in a scarlet coat with gold braid and white gloves, and smash his way out of his glass case. She chases this White Rabbit, with its bulging glass eyes and rather creepily protuberant teeth, into a desk drawer — a series of desk drawers — and we are sucked along with her into a succession of delightfully, unsettlingly strange rooms and corridors, with peeling walls and bizarre, ancient objects, many of which come to life, filling themselves with sawdust — fossils and skeletons and dolls in particular. Other things too: jams, loaves, leaves, and even steaks.

Only Svankmajer can deliver us into this raw and tactile realm. A visually lyrical flirtation with that which we might call childhood, through the eyes of a whimsical farcity. Giving even our tongues goosebumps- enchantment is obtained. You will find me guilty of watching this film at least once or twice a month ALL hail Svankmajer and Svankmajerova. Read More. Would love to see the Czech-language version with English subtitles eventually.

It is a loose adaptation of Lewis Carroll 's first Alice book, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland , about a girl who follows a white rabbit into a bizarre fantasy land. The film combines live action with stop motion animation, and is distinguished by its dark and uncompromising production design. The director had been disappointed by other adaptations of Carroll's book, which interpret it as a fairy tale. His aim was instead to make the story play out like an amoral dream. The film opens on an close-up of a young girl's Alice mouth, informing the audience that they will now see a film, and instructing them to close their eyes "otherwise you won't see anything! A mysterious creaking noise draws her attention to a taxidermically stuffed White Rabbit in a glass case upon a desk.
