Fantasy in Ernst Theodor Hoffmann’s manner
Experimental film made on the border of animation and feature cinema. This philosophical fairy tale is centered on the story of Hoffmann’s hero traveling ‘ Behind the Looking Glass’. Imagine the wold inhabited by salamanders and black dragons: the fairy land who has just been created by some kind of a winged spirit who not only breathed in life but also left the Talisman that can support this life.
The film was awarded the Special Prize of the “Okno v Yevropu” (“ The Window to Europe”) International Film Festival in Vyborg (1993).
