Jan Švankmajer – Něco z Alenky aka “Something from Alice” (1988)

 

Švankmajer is probably one of the worlds best kept creative secrets, unfortunately. Hardly heard and known outside the initiated follower groups, Jan comes up with the most striking and thoughtful, or should I say stirring film narratives. Working in his native city of Prague throughout, his background in puppetry, sculpture and performance gives him a unique voice in animation-live action film making. Inimitable. See for yourself.

hmm I don’t really think this has much commercial potential at all, but then, I dont think the director wanted to be commercial. strange and curious movie.

I am new to surrealism, and like Dali, Svankmajer’s world is also an improbable and fantastic one. Is Svankmajer the movie Dali?

I saw this in a Film Festival, and was struck by the originality of adaptation, probably the most unpredictale of all ‘Alice’ adaptations. Thakns for spreading the Svankmajer ‘message’. :)
