Plot synopsis
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).
